LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE, ANNVILLE, PA. W Thursday, January 12, 1950 

This is a picture of the revised Athletic building now under construction on the campus. Many students have been wondering 
how the building has been changed. This is it. Compare this building to the picture of the other printed in a former La Vie.

On Freedom 

By Carl Y. Ehrhart, Professor of Philosophy 

(Ed. note: This is the second in a series of articles writ- 
ten by faculty members of Lebanon Valley College. The 
third in this series will appear in a near-future edition of 
La Vie). 

One of the indications of personal immaturity is the unwilling- 
ness to tolerate expression of opinion contrary to our own, that is, to 
the received opinion with which we have identified ourselves. And if 
you insist on disagreeing, you must be removed or throttled, at all 

Americans both cherish and fear freedom. Else why would they 
expend themselves and pour out their wealth in a tremendous con- 
flict to preserve their liberties, and at the same time deprive a portion 
of their own citizens, negro citizens to be sure, of those very liberties? 
Citizens incidentally, who were considered "good enough" to fight in 
defense of that which they were being denied. 

Americans both cherish and fear freedom. Else why would they 
encourage meetings dedicated to race-hating "Klu-Klux-Klanism," and 
break up with stones and clubs a meeting dedicated to communism? 

Americans both cherish and fear freedom. Else why would a 
Congressional committee ostensibly set up to protect our civil liberties 
from nefarious groups designated "Un-American" seriously propose to 
examine college text-books, in the best fascist and totalitarian man- 
ner? Or a Congressman proud of his defense of freedom and "indi- 
vidual initiative" propose to set up a committee of art critics to police 
artists, making sure that none of them painted anything more abstract 
than a photograph of your Aunt Tillie or anything which would not 
look nice on a recruiting poster, or on a calendar from Jake's Meat 

There is a lot more that could be used by way of illustration, but 
columns, like bologna, must be cut off and tied up somewhere. The 
sort of behavior we've been talking about seems to indicate a sort of 
social and national immaturity. And a theologian might say that these 
examples are all instances of the self-centerdness and pride that is the 
chief manifestation of original sin. At any rate, we had all better grow 
up while we have the chance. 

Freedom is to be cherished, not feared. A prominent newspaper 
in commenting on the "Robeson incident" at Peekskill, says that in 
the long run, freedom is itself the best weapon we have against those 
who woud deprive us of it. John Stuart Mill tells us that even recog- 
nized errors quite often contain a portion of truth; and furthermore 
they perform the happy service of keeping the believers and defenders 
of truth alert. We can only add this, that freedom is like friendship 
It is found only in sharing. 

Scorn in Boston 

(Ed. Note: This article was printed in 
the current issue of PATHFINDER.) 

Lawrence Dame, veteran Boston 
Herald reporter, had often heard 
Psychology Prof. F. Alexander Ma- 
goun of the Massachusetts Insti- 
tute of Technology express him- 
self frankly, but confidentially, on 
the low status of college teaching. 
Stocky, energetic and full of ideas, 
Dr. Magoun has been at M.I.T. for 
for years. Reporters found him 
an endless source of information. 
But when he came to his choicest 
comments, he would always add: 
"Now, remember, that's off the 

Last week Dame heard the pro- 
fessor was resigning to do some 
writing. Maybe now the lid would 
be off. He hurried off to see Ma- 
goun. Not only was the lid off, 
but he gave Dame the whole ket- 

In it were some things that sent 
a cold chill down the spine of many 
a U. S. educator. Good teachers 
exist in the colleges, admitted Ma- 
goun, but they are all too few. 

Safe Rut. "The trouble is there 
are to many teachers who dish out 
the same old thing year after year. 
That's the safe way. They stay 
out of trouble. But it isn't the 
stimulating way to teach . . . What 
right has anyone to become a 
teacher without ideas? Why, it's 
become so bad in some places that 
when a professor says 'good morn- 
ing,' the students take that down 
in notes! 

"What most teachers are doing 
is 'telling' something to students, 
instead of letting them discover. 
If students memorize, they get 
good marks. But if they think for 
themselves, they get poor grades. 

"Remember, the mind, which is 
so often considered a mere instru- 
ment of reasoning in academic 
halls, is actually the center of the 
nervous system and is the thing 
you feel with. How you use it to 
think depends on how you feel. 
There is too much of the idea of 
'think like the professor or 
flunk.' " 

Look to the Coach. For those 
who think a football coach should 
not get three times as much salary 
as a professor, Magoun had only 
scorn. "The football coach de- 
serves what he gets. Why? Be- 
cause he studies each man. The 
more successful ones are good 
psychologists. Imagine — some pro- 
fessors can't hitch up names and 

In Magoun's own classes, stu- 
dents enjoyed themselves. He 
made it known ideas which dis- 
agreed with his own were wel- 
comed, not discouraged. His favor- 
ite method of prodding his students 
to think was one word: "Why?" 

Added Magoun: "A lot of teach- 
ers think most universities would 
be swell places to work in were it 
not for the students. A good teach- 
er, on the other hand, is a man 
who unites his two loves — his stu- 
dents and his subject."

To The Editor. 

To whom it may concern: 

The most puzzling question of 
the new year is, "When do we 
eat?" The boarding students of. the 
college can not seem to digest 
beans for four meals in a row nor 
can they saw the shoe-leather 
brand steak that is served with the 
hardware which the dining hall 
provides. And fruit cocktail for 
three meals in a row! Can't there 
be better deserts if there can't be 
better meals? Who is to blame 
when ten students leave the din- 
ing hall because the meal does 
not look digestable, besides the 
fact that it isn't? 

So for the New Year, we stu- 
dents resolve to eat better meals if 
only better meals are served! 

Dear students, 

It was two months ago when I 
arrived here in Annville to con- 
tinue my studies at Lebanon Val- 
ley College. The first time the 
doors of this college opened be- 
fore me, I knew that I was enter- 
ing the new world — a world of 
youth, a world of happiness. It 
was a world with the motto, "And 
ye shall know the truth, and the 
truth shall make you free." Now 
it was going to be my motto, too. 

You professors who are teaching 
the truth to the young men and 
young women, and you fellow stu- 
dents who are here to learn the 
truth, you are the citizens of this 
happy world, and I am so glad 
:hat I am able to be a part of this 
student body. 

You all have given so much to 
me that I can never repay you. 
You have given me a place in the 
vorld I have dreamed of. You 
lave made it possible for me to 
•ontinue my studies. You have 
>rovided me with all the necessi- 
ies of life. In Christmas holiday 
r ou gave me nice presents and 
nade it possible to spend my vaca- 
ion with my friends in New York. 
lou have given to me a happy end 
or 1949. 

What I can do to repay a little 
o the student body of L. V. C. is 
o promise to be a good citizen 
>f this new world and I am always 
hankful to you. 

Please find here my thanks to 
'our president Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, 
o Mr. Gockley, to all professors 
)f Lebanon Valley College, and to 
you my fellow students. 

I wirh to you a happy new year, 
ull of luck and success! That all 
;he happiness you have made for 
thers should return to you this

Basketball Team Nets Two Wins From 
Elizabethtown And Kings College 


Coach Ralph Mease's Lebanon 
Valley Flying Dutchmen started 
the new year off on the right foot 
as they registered two impressive, 
high-scoring victories over Kings 
College of Delaware and Elizabeth- 
town College, during the past 
week. On Wednesday night the 
Blue and White took a thriller 
from Kings by a 77-73 score, and 
on Saturday night, the Mease five 
fought off a stubborn E-town 
quintet and produced an 84-77 tri- 
umph. Although team play in gen- 
eral has been rather good, Larry 
Kinsella and Floyd Becker seem 
to have been the prime movers in 
the success of the Dutchmen. Both 
have been consistently high scor- 
ers and at present Becker leads 
the team with 101 while Kinsella 
has racked up 9 9. Larry has been 
hitting the basket regularly with 
all sorts of shots and has shown 
his wares as an able backboard 
man in proving that he is one of 
the better players on the floor; 
while Becker continues to tantalize 
the crowds with his unique and de- 
ceptive antics which are rare on 
any college court. Red Langstaff 
and Richie Furda, both of whom 
hail from Union County, New 
Jersey, as does Kinsella, have also 
shown well with the Dutchmen. 
Richie, although a freshman and 
not exactly a George Mikan, really 
keeps up with the pace the heighty 
boys impose, and has demonstrated 
his ability as an excellent player 
in that he is a calm, hard-charg- 
ing, and an accurate shot while 
also being a good floor man. Lang- 
staff hasn't been seeing his usual 
amount of action lately, but when 
he's in there, the "Ole Redhead" 
is always valuable around the 
boards and is another Valley stal- 
wart in team play. Henry DiJohn- 
son is one of the most sensational 
"fakers" seen in a long time and 
Hank really draws the "oo's and 
ah's" from the spectators when he 
exhibits some of his spectacular 
faking. Eddie Frazier is a clever 
and deft ball handler with a well- 
developed eye for shooting and 
along with lanky Chuck Zimmer- 
man, Johnny Hess, and Bill Tom- 
ilen, this rounds out the team that 
has been scoring at a torrid 74.5 
average per game for Lebanon 
Valley, winning four times and 
losing twice. 



Expert Ha 

r Cutting 

Against Kings, the Dutchmen led 
at the end of the first canto by an 
18-11 mark, but after a high scor- 
ing second quarter during which 
the visitors outpointed the Valley- 
ites by two buckets, the Blue and 
White held a slim 42-39 advan- 
tage. Majority of the time the 
contest was evenly fought with 
with amazing basket-for-basket 
scoring, but midway through the 
third session the Lebanonian five 
pulled out to what seemed as 
though the clinching commanding 
lead, by having a 60-52 margin. 
The visitors from Delaware came 
to life again, and much to the sur- 
prise of the crowd the Scepter- 
holders were in he van leading 
62-60 after slashing the cords for 
twelve consecutive points. 

Lebanon Valley then came back 
and gave a little demonstration of 
their own as they flipped in a 
string of six markers and were 
leading once again, 66-52. After 
a few exchanges of shots the 
Crowned-ones were ahead once 
more, this time by 69-68. Becker's 
set shot put the Measemen in the 
lead, but Kings just wouldn't sub- 
mit and retailated with two more 
points. DiJohnson then hit the silk 
for a deuce and converted an ensu- 
ing foul to allow LVC a 73-71 
bulge. Two successive free throws 
by the visitors tied it up once 
again, and as the score board 
showed 73-73 the crowd was on 
their feet with their yelling and 
noisemaking in general coming to 
a near hysterical state. Richie 
Furda calmed the LVC loyals 
somewhat as he took a pass from 
Frazier and sank the decisive goal. 
Kings failed to rally on this and 
sterling Larry Kinsella took a re 
bound, dribbled through the mid- 
dle of the visitng team's defensive 
zone and threw in a two-pointer 
for good measure as the hectic en- 
counter ended. George Dempsey, 
top college scorer in Delaware last 
season, led the scorers in the game 
by tossing in eleven field goals and 
four charities for 26 points. Larry 
Kinsella was high man for the 
Dutchmen with 20 markers while 
Eddie Frazier pilfered the nets for 
18, and "Flashy Floyd" Becker hit 
the hoops for sixteen registrations.

of adding more points to his already high average this year. 

The contest with Elizabethtown 
got off to a ragged start and in 
the early moments the tussle 
looked as though it wa ssome 
sloppy high school affair as moth 
teams put on a dismal presenta- 
tion of bad basketball. The scoring 
was nip-and-tuck, but the Dutch-

Causes With Caution 

By Marvin E. Wolfgang, Professor of Sociology, LVC 

One of the most widely used expressions today, both in scientific and non- 
scientific literature is that one phenomenon or situation causes another. Repre- 
sentatives of advanced learning have also become emissaries of good caiises, 
often without an adequate understanding or appreciation of their assertions. 
The historian may irrevocably claim that the cause of World War II was 
German militarism or the frustration caused by the punitive nature of the 
Versailles Treaty. The American economist, with no methodological quiver 
in his capitalistic throat, may say that the financial plight of Britain is due 
to socialism. A well-versed political scientist may state that the China prob- 
lem was caused by inadequate foreign policy or by the corrupt past of the 
Kuomintang. The Psychologist, with equal certainty, will say that Whittaker 
Chambers lied because he is a constitutional psychopathic inferior. The decline 
of morals is the cause of family disorganization, crime, and alcoholism, assert 
many religious leaders. Failure to give attention to the will of God can mean 
the decay of civilization, claim some philosophers. 

The sociologist sees the cultural environment and the social milieu as the 
cause of social disorganization. The psychiatrist takes us back to childhood 
experiences to determine the causes of present disharmonies and the psycho- 
analyst back to our repressions and complexes. 

To Lombroso, the criminal was a "type," a result of "atavism." To the 
successful businessman labor strife is responsible for the high costs of living; 
but the spokesman of the labor union asserts that management produces its 
own chaos. Is the prohibitionist right when he says liquor is the root of all 
evil? Can the race enthusiast be correct in accusing the South tor our major 
minority problem? What is the cause of divorce, crime, sex perversion, 
delinquency? Do any of these explanations as to cause reflect a higher order 
of knowledge that that possessed by the man on the street? 

A cause of any observable phenomenon is the invariable indispensable 
antecedent that has the capacity to produce that phenomenon. But these ante- 
cedents may be multiple, and so vastly interwoven as to deecive the most 
astute observer. As John Stuart Mill asks in his System of Logic, what is 
the cause of a man's drowning? Is it his falling into the river? Is it the tact 
that his foot slipped? Or is it the fact that the water was too deep, or the 
fact that he could not swim ? It is evident that we must be aware of both the 
positive and negative factors involved in the situation. Can we, with our 
limited specialized knowledge, our academic glasses steamed with error and 
tinted to match our professional colors see clearly the causes of the effects 
that lie before us? 

Our various disciplines must look more closely at social phenomena before 
definitively asserting that one thing has produced another. Our professors 
should teach discrimination between reason and emotion, evidence and opinion, 
absolute and multiple cause. Our students should become scientifically skepti- 
cal, critical, and alert. Else the college education of the future will come to 
mean nothing more than an organized body of digested knowledge, the evalua- 
tion and understanding of which the average illiterate could similarly report.

Quakers Offer Social 
Work To College Youth 

Service opportunities in work camps, 
seminars, institutes, interneships in 
industry and cooperatives, and in men- 
tal and correctional institutions are 
being offered to college students again 
by the American Friends Service 
Committee it was announced today 
by Clarence E. Pickett, Executive 
Secretary of the Quaker organization. 

Three of the^e projects, Interneship- 
in-Industrv Institutional Service 
Units, and Service Units in Mexico,

are open to applicants at any time 
during the -"Sr. 

In New Tersev, at the Clinton 
Farms State Reformatory for Wo- 
men and at the Overbrook Essex 
County Mental Hospital, 14 Institu- 
tional Service Unit members, serving 
as attendants, are helping to meet the 
needs of the delinquents and the 
mentally ill. 

In four Mexican villages, 50 unit

groups, to aid Mexico's health and 
education program by helping in 
clinics, organizing recreation pro- 

grams for children, or working on 
road construction, hospital repair, 
and village water and sewage sys- 
tems. The project at Nayarit, a Pilot 
Program in Basic Education, is joint- 
ly sponsored by the Mexican Govern-

ed by the Service Committee. 

Special summer units of these 
three year-round projects will also 
be sponsored by the Service Commit- 

Additional Institutional Service 
Units will be sponsored in California, 
Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and a pos- 
sible third unit in New Jersey in a

Associations of Schools of Music to be held at the Hotel Statler, Cleveland 
February 22-28 will include Miss Mary E. Gillespie, Dean of the Lebana 
Valley College Conservatory. 

The Cleveland convention will mark the end of the 25th anniversary of the 
NASM, an event which was celebrated throughout the year 1949 by tlii 
organization's 180 member schools. The growth of the Association durinj 
the past quarter century has paralleled the phenomenal development of Am«ri- 
can music in all its phases. The epoch has witnessed the transformation oi 
music from dilettantism and patronage into professional and industrial sell' 

_ The music schools of 25 years ago, modeled after European conserva- 
tories, recognized at that time the need for a strong centralizing current oi 
control, an organization capable of amalgamating the best interests and highes: 
ideals of men and women in charge of music schools throughout the land. The 
result was the birth of the NASM which held its first formal convention it 
Pittsburgh in October 1924. 

A highlight of the coming convention in Cleveland will be the Silver 
Anniversary Luncheon at one o'clock in the Euclid Room of the Statler. Dr. 
Burnet C. Tuthill, who has sreved the Association as secretary since to 
inception in 1924, will be Master of Ceremonies. Responses from Past Presi-

Television Script-Writing Contest 
Opened by CBS and World Video 

A nationwide collegiate writing com- 
petition, designed to encourage the 
emergence of new television writers, 
was launched today by joint announce- 
ment of the Columbia Broadcasting 
System and World Video Inc., leading 
independent television producing or- 

The competition, to be known as 
the CBS Awards, is open to students 
in American colleges and universities. 
It will offer four prizes, the first to 
be awarded March 31, 1950, and the 
others at monthly intervals during the 
rest of the spring academic semester. 
The amount of the award will be $500 
if the prize-winning script is of one- 
hour performance length, or $250 if it 
is a half-hour script. 

The prize-winning entries will be 
screened by a board of editors and the 
final selections will be made by .1 
three-man board of judges comprising: 

Charles M. UtrWhill, Director of 
Programs for the CBS Television 

John Steinbeck, author, and a Vice 
President of World Video Inc. 

Donald Davis, dramatist, screen 
writer and produced for World Video 
Inc. of the Peabody Award-winning 
"Actors' Studio," which launches its 
new schedule of one-hour programs 
on CBS-TV Friday, Feb. 3. 

In describing the aims of the contset, 
the official announcement declared : 

"The development of television as a 
mass communication medium brings 
with it the promise of unprecedented 
cultural advantages. Realization of 
this promise depends not only on the 
excellence of television's technical fa- 
cilities and on its operational scope and 
skill, but equally on the development 
of new creative writing talent devoted 
to the new medium. 

"The Columbia Broadcasting Sys- 
tem and World Video Inc. believe that 
some of tomorrow's most gifted tele- 
vision writers may be found among the 
large number of college and university 
students of today. This competition, to 
be known as the CBS Awards, is 
therefore instituted with a twofold 
purpose in view : 

"To encourage new writers to dis- 
cover and bring to maturity their spec- 

study problems of international co- 
operation and peace in >e /en-week 
International Service Seminars _ and 
in ten-day Institutes of International 
Relations. In both projects, well- 
known authorities on international 
affairs serve as facidty members, dis- 
cussion leaders, and advisers. Insti- 
tutes and seminars will be located 
in New England, the Middle West, 
and the Far West. The Service 
Committee will also sponsor seven 
seminars abroad, five in Europe and 
two in Asia. The seminars in Eur- 
ope and in Asia will be attended by 
people who are already studying in 
these areas. The Committee does not 
have funds to send people abroad to 
participate in seminars. 

More information concerning th-se 
projects may be obtained by writing

competent officiating that LVC teams 
are used to and therefore participated 
in handing the Dutchmen their fifth 
loss in a dozen attempts by a score 
of 70-65 in a r-me that wasn't "decid- 
ed" until the final minute. 

Penn Military employed a tough full 
court press which in the early mo- 
ments presented a problem to the Blue 
and White. Very shortly however, the 
charges of Coach Ralph Mease, man- 
aged to break through and soon the 
pressing of the soldiers didn't function 
as properly as it was supposed to. 
The Red and Yellow pulled ahead in 
the first quarter, but before the ban- 
ning canto was over, the Dutchmen 
fought the men of Woody Ludwig 
to a 19-all tie mainly on the ten point 
effort of Eddie Frazier. During the 
second quarter hte spectators were 
presenled some real basketball as the 
fast-break of the Dutchmen began to 
click to a certain extent against the 
pressing of the home team and their 
dead set shot artists. This is some- 
thing that can be said for the boys 
with the big yellow stockings, in that 
they didn't drive m for many scores 
but rather hit from the outside. Leba- 
non Valley kept scoring on all types 
of shots from lay ups to some of the 
flashy sets. And the end of the sec- 
ond chukker saw the Lebanon five 
trail 41-46. 

Larty Kinsella and big Al Muravvski 
set the pace in the third stanza with 
three field goals each as the visitoi s 
outscored the Delaware Countians 18- 
11 to go into the final period with a 
slim 59-57 lead. Penn Military came 
back with a strong effort again and 
maintained a lead until two minutes 
of the end when Floyd Becker put the 
Dutchmen ahead for a short time 
However this was short-lived too 
as one of the Cadet sharpshooters went 
to work and PMC soon worked its 
way to a 68-65 yead with a half-minute 
playing time left. The "officiating" 
then sent the LVC fans into a roar 
as a foul was called when Henrv 
Dijohnson and Becker began giving 
the Chesterites a dose of their own 
medicine of pressing. Dijohnson and 
Becker protested violently and were 
discharged from the game. With 
barely seconds left, the Militarists 
mustered two more points and won out

For An Away Loss, 70-65 

There's a sign in Chester, Pennsylvania, the home of Pennsylvania Mili- 
tary College, that reads, "Electricity Is Cheap in Chester." Well, after 
Saturday night we came to the conclusion that, "So is the officiating." PMC 
rudely defeated the Flying Dutchmen at their home base in what was probably 
one of the worst exhibitions of refereeing ever witnessed by Lebanon Valley 
coaches, plavers and fans. The officials r . . r , 

didn't live i- to the usual standard of 7°-65 m the routy final 

Eddie .brazier garnered high scoring 
laurels for the contest by dunking 19 
counters while Al Murawski sent 13 
points through the nets. Floyd Becker 
sank 12 and we want to add that % 
"officials" were somewhat baffled by 
the classy and unique play of Floyd 
and a few times called walking when 
he dazzled some Cadet with his 
"round-the-back" trick with the ball. 
Larry Kinsella played his usual heads 
up ball game as did Red LangstalT, 
while Richie Furda was also outstand- 
ing. Tngber was the big-gun for the 
home squad with 14 markers and was 
followed by Udovich with 13 and 
Martz, a clever ball player, with 12. 

In the preliminary tussel Coach 
Dick Fox's Junior Varsity encountered 
no trouble with the officiating and 
tailed through the Little Cadets for a 
56-47 win which is their seventh in 
nine starts. Joe Oxley was high scor- 
er with 16 while Leon Mile and Bill 
Vought each had 11 counters. Plomis 
shone for the Red ^nd Yellow with JO. 

Previous to their encounter wwi 
PMC, the Flving Dutchmen played 
four games of which they won all 
except one, and that being the -lash 
with our arch-rival, Albright, at Read- 
ing on January 29. This contest saw 
the Dutchmen falter 26-17 in the first 
period, but come back to outscore *.h e 
home team in the second canto I4"9" 
and thus be on the short end of only a 
five point half-time margin, 3.5-31. The 
second portion was more evenly pbyeij 
with Albright scoring 20 to LV's }° 
in the third session, while LVC, main- 
ly on the shooting of Flashy Floyd 
Becker did the same to the Cadets 
in the final. The damage however was 
already too extensive and the 
Lions walked off the court with * 
74-67 win. 

Floyd Becker swished the silk fo r 
18 points to lead the LV squad, follow- 
ed by Richie Furda with 15, Larry 
Kinsella with 14 and Eddie Frazil 
with 13. Albright, who has defeated 
such prominent opnosition as Setofl 
Hall and St. Joseph's, was led b^ P' 
Beiber with 19 and Eddie Anlian v/it» 
18. The Albright Junior Varsity pul led 
an upset bv defeating the LV C Ju"i° rS

Mexican dribblers proved to be * 
much more formidable team than

So Long, Andy 

By Jim Pacy 

Andy Kerr, "Dean of American 
Football Coaches," resigned on Satur- 
day as head man of Lebanon Valley 
College football, in order to devote 
full time to the annual East-West 
charity football game Kerr's resigna- 
tion, which came as quite a surprise 
to the Annville campus, means an 
end to his active career as a college 
football mentor. According to Dr. 
Clyde A. Lynch, college president, a 
succesor will be named soon, but as 
yet no information concerning such 
will be divulged. 

"Andy," as he is affectionately called, 
came to Lebanon Valley in 1047 after 
compiling one of the most enviable 
lecords as a gridiron coach at Colgate 
University where he served with dis- 
tinction for 18 full seasons. While at 
the helm of the LVC Flying Dutch- 
men, Kerr saw his charges win 15, 
lose 3 and tie 2. Of those contests, 
one victory was the stunning 13-7 set- 
back pinned on Scranton University's 
powerful contingent in 1947, while 
one of the ties was a 7-7 deadlock 
with the much heavier pigskin forces 
of Temple University in 1948. 

Commenting on his resignation, Kerr 
stated, "1 am leaving Lebanon Valley 
with regrets as I was perfectly con- 
tented here." President Lynch issued 
a f statement saying, "we regret his 
decision to retire from the active 
coaching field in general and his 
severance of his close associations with 
Lebanon Valley College in particular." 

Hie 71-year-old famed grid boss 
mentioned that he would serve as the 
eastern representative and business 
manager of the East-West game held 
annually at San Francisco on Decem- 
p r 3 T - He has been a coach in the 
-ast-West series for twenty-three 
"»rs and the last game ended in a 
[r mmph for his Easterners. 

• Ker r was born in Cheyenne, Wyo- 
the son of a stock man and 

CarTi ^ s e ' ementarv education in 
jv , . e > Pa. He was graduated from 
and .vV CoIle se of the same place

By Bill Einspanier 
St. Louis University News 

A release from a well-known cos- 
metics manufacturer was received in 
the News office this week and just 
couldn't be thrown into the waste- 
basket. Several of the more burly 
sports writers tried, but the release 
just refused to be so easily snubbed. 
Indeed, it was thought-provoking and 
somewhat unique. It began : "For Im- 
mediate Release" (underlined) and 
was titled: Beauty 101. We decided 
to take the release apart, read between 
the lines a bit, and see what it was 
really worth. Our objective criticism 
is subordinated in parentheses. The 
release read : 

"If you could put your nose cr your 
eyes on your face each day, would you 
slap them on in any position? {All 
right, you've got a point there; con- 
tinue.) Your nose and eyes are there 
to stay {Flattery will get you no- 
where) — but you can place your lip 
outline each morning. {Like you would 
outline an essay on Nuclear Fission 
or a plan for a nezv parking lot.) 

"Painting lips, like any other paint- 
ing, begins with an outline {then slap 
your face on an easel and smear in the 
goo) and you, like any other artist, 
should use a brush such as *** lip 
brush of Russian sable {other styles 
available: Tibetan mountain goat, New 
Zealand Apieryx, plain, old, everyday 
feathers from a tanager's chin.) 

"First, put plenty of lipstick on the 
brush to trace a smooth line. {We sell 
;nore lipstick that way, too.) Keep the 
lips closed and in repose while draw- 
ing the outline {Use thumb-tacks, if 
you like) because a gold-fish expres- 
sion distorts the natural lip line {un- 
less, of cou'rse, you're a goldfish.) 

"Trace the upper lip first {to keep 
it stiff) from the outside corner to 
center {as in basketball) and then 
draw a short, straight line across the 
bottom of the lower lip. {With a 
ruler, of course.) Starting at the out- 
er corners of the lower lip, indent 
slightly. {After you've acquired the 
habit, you can simply use the tabula- 
tor key and set it for five spaces.) and 
then draw a full, soft curve down to 
the straight line {continuing up your 
cheek, making a complete c'frcle around 
your left eye, and tracing your ini- 

sentatives from all the colleges in the 
state will participate. A series of 
events have been planned for Wednes- 
day. Thursday and Friday. Wednes- 
day is registration day with a rehear- 
sal in the afternoon. Thursday will be 
filled with rehearsals, and in the even- 
ing Mr. Hoggard will conduct a vocal 
clinic from 7:30 to 9:30 P.M. During 
this time he will discuss problems of 
choral directing. Following this clinic 
a dance will be held in the Annville 
High School Gym. Don Trostle and 
his orchestra will play. At this time 
also a buffet supper will be served 
to visiting supervisers at the Annville 
American Legion. Friday evening at 
8:30 the concert will be presented in 
the Forum at Harrisburg. 

The Lebanon Valley College Orch- 
estra will be used to acompanv sev- 
eral of the selections. Personnel is 
as follows: Flutes — Ray Kauffman, 
Beatrice Royer ; Clarinet s — Jack 
Snavely, William Cagnoli, Harold 
Rothenberger, Richard Stewart, Clay- 
•.on Schneck; Bass Clarinet — Melvin 
Schiff • Trumpets — Chester Richwine, 
William Lemon, John McKenzic, Don- 
ald Coldren; French Horns — Bruce 
Wiser, Harry Keim ; Trombones — 
Charles Kreis, Eugene Tritch, George 
Wolf ; Tuba — Allen Koppenhaver ; 
String Bass — Miriam Fuller; Percus- 
sion — George Alwood, Jed Dietrich; 
Celeste — Joyce Hammock ; Vibraphone 
— Kenneth Keiser. 

The following members of the 
Glee Club have been chosen : Sidney 
Garverich, Annette Read, Doris Eck-

Waring Artists Taking Active 

Part in First Music Festival 

Lara Boggard, gifted young choral director for Fred Waring, is fast 
becoming a familiar person to high school and college music teachers and 
their students. As Fred Waring's envoy, Hoggard has been guest conductor 
of many high school and college music festivals and has lectured at choral 
clinics before public school, college and church choir directors, demonstrating 
the practical choral techniques which 
have been responsible for the phen- 
omenal sucess of the Fred Waring 
Glee Club. Dovetailing with Hog- 
gard's field trips for the Fred Waring 
organization are his activities as Chor- 
al Editor of Shawnee Press which 
publishes the Fred Waring Choral 
arrangements and during the summer 
months as Dean in Charge of Instruc- 
tion at the Fred Waring Music Work- 
shop for choral conductors held at 
Shawnee-on-Delaware, Pa. 

Hoggard's primary function with 
the Pennsylvanians is assisting Fred 
Waring in training and rehearsing his 
famous glee club for their radio, tele- 
vision and concert performances. 

After a year of fellowship graduate 
study at Columbia University in 1939, 
Lara was selected by the University of 
Oklahoma as director of choral music 
and professor of music education. 
While there, his glee club recordings 

were cho&en by the Department of 
State's Office of Inter-American Af- 
fairs to represent the section of music 
in American colleges. These record- 
ings were used as a part of the "good 
will" plan and were played in all the 
principal cities of South America. 
Hoggard's University of Oklahoma 
glee club went on to win further laur- 
els for the young man of music. In 
the finals for the National Inter- 
Collegiate Glee Club competition, spon- 
sored by Fred Waring in 1942 anr 1 
held in Carnegie Hall, Hoggard's 
glee club won a special award for the 
finest "choral artistry." 

Fred Waring was so impressed with 
Hoggard's ability at this time that he 
asked him to join the staff of the 
Pennsylvanian's, but Lara had volun- 
teered for duty in the United States 
Navy where he served in combat duty 
for three years. 

Lara Hoggard 

Morley and Gearhart 

Virginia Morley and Livingston 

> Critics often use the word "versa- 
tile" to describe Virginia Morley and 
Livingston Gearhart, duo-piano team 
featured on Fred Warings' broadcasts 
and concerts. Acclaimed as concert 
artists, they have won equal recogni- 
tion in the popular music field. 

The two youthful pianists met and 
combined their music talents in Paris 
where they were both scholarship 
students at the Fontainebleau Conserv- 
atory. Their Paris debut was a bril- 
liant critical and public success and 
before returning to this country the 
pair presented several joint recitals 
in Paris, Lyons, Zurich, Berne, Fon- 
tainebleau and Brussels. In New York 
the two have appeared at Town Hall 
and in concerts for the League of 
Composers and the New York Phil- 
harmonic Symphony League. They 
make annual concert tours extending 
to all parts of the United States as 
well as Can.ida. Three eminent com- 
posers—Darius Mielhaud, David Dia- 
mond and Norman Dello Joio— have 
dedicated important piano works to 

the two artists who play as one." 
In abrupt contrast to their classical 
talents, Morley and Gearhart have 
been featured in several of New 
York s top night spots, where their 
distinctive and ingenious arrangements 
of popular music brought them to the 
attention of Fred Waring Since 104? 
they have been heard regularly over 
the air on the Waring show for which 
Livingston has also written many of 

the unusual musical arrangements in- 
cluding the well-known "Dry Bones. 
More of their inventiveness is appa f j 
ent in the nine popular tunes contains 
in their new album, "Night Life on 
Two Pianos" (Columbia).

Last Wednesday the Dutchmen 
quintets journeyed to Scranton, only 
to absorb two heartbreaking defeats. 
In the varsity game, Scranton stayed 
out in the front the whole way. They 
grabbed a quick 4-0 lead and tenaci- 
ously clung to a small lead the whole 
game. Larry Kinsella quickly pumped 
through two one handers to put the 
score at 4-5. A few seconds later 
scrappy Al Murawski tied it all up 
at 7-7 with a foul shot. The game 
see-sawed back and forth until the 
quarter ended with the Royals hold- 
ing on to their 13-ia lead. It was 
a very listless first quarter with Scran- 
ton missing layups and the Valley 
loafing and taking long sets instead 
of their usual brand of working the 
ball around. 

The second quarter was almost a 
repetition of the first. Scranton scored 
first and then Murawski and Becker 
zipped through 4 points to narrow it 
down to 14-iS. Then the Royals 
caught fire and began to pull away on 
their ability to sink hook shots around 
the basket, and to almost always come 
up with the ball under the boards. 
The only thing that held the score 
down to 20-28 at halftime was fresh- 
man Murawski's inspired playing. He 
was getting a majority of the Valley's 
rebounds, and proving a real thorn in 
the Royals' side. 

At the start of the second half L.V. 
narrowed the lead down to 23-30 and 
then Scranton, dumping in all kinds 
of shots, increased their lead to 40-25 
with four minutes to go in the quar- 
ter. The Dutchmen pulled together 
and narrowed it down to 33-42 at the 
close of the third frame. For a team 
that was averaging close to 76 points, 
the Valley was really annoyed at what 
was happening. 

As soon as the fourth quarter start- 
ed you could see a different Annville 
team on the floor. "Chuck" Zimmer- 
man put in a nice one-hander and 
Becker swished a set from way out- 
side. Eddie Frazier chalked up a free 
throw and seconds later Becker rang 
up another two points to put the score 
at 40-46. The Royals returned the 
spree with one of their own and quick- 
ly ran the count to 40-52. At this 
point Scranton's Jim Tully went out 
on fouls and perhaps this was the 
break the Valley was hoping for. 
There were only four minutes left now 
and L.V. had to make up to 12 points. 
The Dutchmen started scrapping and 
stole the ball away after two foul goals 
were converted by Eddie Frazier. 
Murawski scorched the cords with a 
nice overhead set shot, after which 
Becker stole the ball on the throw-in, 
dribbled down the floor and laid in 2 
points. Seconds later, Hank Dijohn- 
son stole the ball and zoomed down 
the court for 2 more points. Now the 
Royals had only a 3 point lead, 54-51' 
Frazier grabbed a pass, faked his 
man out of position and drove in for 
another basket. One point behind with

watching the razzle-dazzle of the Red 
Raiders during Andy Kerr's lengthy 
football hey-day at Colgate University 
would expect that only a mathematics 
teacher could produce such formulas." 
This statement can be well upheld by 
the fact that upon receiving his col- 
legiate degree he 'aught mathematics 
at Johnstown, Pa., High School, but 
soon gave up the clasroom for the 
football field he loves so well. His 
initial college coaching effort was as 
track coach and assistant football 
coach to Glenn "Pop" Warner at the 
University of Pittsburgh, where he 
remained from 1914 to 1922. 

When Stanford University of Calif- 
ornia appointed Warner as head foot- 
ball coach, Warner sent Andy Kerr 
ahead to install the double wing sys- 
tem which he had developed and in 
which Kerr is a foremost authority. 
For two years Andy acted as head 
coach of the Indians and also coached 
basketball until 1926 when he returned 
to Pennsylvania to take over the head 
coaching reins of both football and 
basketball at Washington and Jeffer- 
son College. 

However, Kerr established ins na- 
tionally famous self as a football pro- 
fessor at Colgate where he assumed 
coaching duties in 1929. The Hamil- 
ton, New York, institution was im- 
mediately successful under Kerr as 
their football squads were defeated 
but five times during Andy's first six 
years of tutelage. He directed the 
Red Raiders in 152 tussels of which 
they wone 95, tied 7, and lost 50. Kerr 
produced an undefeated, untied and 
unscored upon team in 1932 and his 
Red Raider eleven of 1934 lost only 
to the sensational Ohio State gridders 
of that year by a field goal. 

In 1946, the New York Touchdown 
Club added to his national fame by 
presenting him their coveted award for 

"outstanding permanent contribution 
to the advancement of the game of 
football." January of 1949 saw the 
American Football Coaches elect Andy 
to honorary membership in the asso- 

It is quite apparent that Andy, 01 
the "Canny Scot" as he is so often 
called by sports writers, has one of 
his main likings of football involved 
with the East- West classic which is 
staged by an organization that he 
belongs to, the Shriners. Andy spoke 
to Lebanon Valley College students 
in chapel on February 1 and there 
outlined briefly the vast part the great 
gridiron stars of our nation do in 
playing this post-season game for the 
benefit of crippled children 

In conclusion, it has been a great 
honor for Lebanon Valley College that 
such a man as Andy Kerr guided the 
destinies of our football forces and 
brought publicity through his own 
reknowned personage. Wherever he 
goes or whatever he does, the time 
Andy has spent at Lebanon Valley will 
be honored and appreciated by its stu-

about 55 seconds to go Scranton tal- 
lied up a foul to stretch their lead 
to two points. The Valley stole the 
ball on the throw-in and zipped it 
around for about 25 seconds. Then 
quick as a flash Frazier sped by his 
man and carefully laid in those prec- 
ious two points to tie it up at 56-56. 
Scranton froze the ball for the re- 
maining three seconds until the buzzer 
sounded ending the game. The Valley 
bad done it again, and they had never 
lost an extra period game yet. 

Scranton opened up the five minute 
period with a quick one hander md 
two points. Becker knotted it at 58-58 
with a set. Scranton scored and then 
Al Murawski put in a beautiful hook 
shot. Medvecky of Scranton then 
fouled Frazier while he was going up 
for a shot after racing down the court. 
It was deliberate, knocking Eddie 
down and shaking him up consider- 
ably. Eddie stayed in the game but 
unfortunately missed both his shots. 
I hat was a tough break, for Scranton 
put in two to tie up their lead 64-40. 
Murawski put in a foul and Frazier 
scored one more to make the final 
count read : Scranton 64, Lebanon Val- 
ley 63. It was a tough one to lose 
and it knocked LV out of their tie for 
first place which Scranton took over. 
It was a hard blow to take, but during 
the first part of the game the boys 
looked as though they didn't feel like 
playing basketball. Only in the fourth 
quarter did they wake up to the fact 
that they had better start moving. 
Becker was high man for the visitors 
with 9 field goals for 18 points. Mur- 
awski had 4 field goals and 9 fouls 
for 17. 

In the J.V. game, Scranton nosed 
out the Valley by a 52-48 count. With 
a minute to go Scranton led 48-47, but 
the Valley couldn't overcome the one 
point. The one bright spot was the 
Valley's sinking 21 out of 26 fouls. 
Scoring honors went to Jim Collucci. 
Leon Miller, and Jim Hanley who had 
10 points.

Well, the Valley's Varsity quintet 
finally got a foothold on the win 
column again. Saturday night saw 
them winning out over a poor Juni- 
ata team to the count of 64-51. The 
large crowd saw Ralph Mease's charg- 
es grab a lead early in the quarter 
which was never to be relinquished. 

Eddie Frazier got the boys off on the ' 
right foot by grabbing a pass immedi- 
ately after the tap in and laying it 
up for a quick 2-0 lead. Juniata coun- 
tered with a foul, then Larry Kinsefla 
and Frazier bucketed two more bas- 
kets. At this point it looked like a 1 
rout for the home team. Due to some 
sloppy ball handling and some wild 
passes by the Valley, Juniata came 
back with two goals and put the count 
at 6-5. Red Langstaff dumped two' 
fouls to help matters some but the 
Blue and Gold equalized it with a 
nice set. Shortly later the visitors took 
their only lead of the night by virtue 
of two foul shots. 

Floyd Becker connected with a set' 
and Dickie Furda broke into the scor- 
ing column with two more fouls, Tip 
iata tied it up on a lay up, but a nice 
one handed drive shot by Kinsells 
and a foul by Eddie Frazier put the 
Home Team out in front by a IS -12 
count as the quarter ended. 

Juniata opened the second period, 
with a quick basket but the Valley 
now got hot and a set by Frazier,, 
some fouls by Langstaff, a set by 
Becker, put the score to 22-17. Haw 
Dijohnson contributed an underhand 
shot then Al Murawski connected a 
beautiful pump shot. Dijohnson P ut 
in another basket and Floyd Becker 
gunned in another set to put the 
Dutchmen out in front by a comfort' 
able 30-19 score at the half. 

The Juniatians started the 2nd ball 
out with 2 quick baskets but the Val- 
ley calmed down as Frazier dashed ; n 
another set and Murawski tapped $ 
a stray rebound Dijohnson convert* 
a foul toss to put the score at 3$' 2 \ 
The boys began to tighten up tc " 
much and were seemingly trying tCl , 
hard. Juniata kept hammering aW a > 
and throwing them up from all an£ |e - 
but luckily couldn't connect very c ° n ' 
sistently. Occasionally the Dutchm^ 
would match a goal to hike the sco f 
to 45-36. 

The fourth quarter saw the l° c *t 
hang on and slowly but consisted- 
chalk up the goals. At one point J . 
iata chopped the lead to 10 points 
L.V. countered with three goals ^ 
the best Juniata could do was rl { J 
up a foul. The game finally cuflif 
the end with the Dutchmen on {S 
long end of a 64-51 score. By rl £,' t 
L.V. really should have run up aD .j te 
100 points, but the boys weren't °. ' 
up to par. They hit on 25 of 65 sj 1 . 
however for 36%, not bad at all. 1 j 
were losing all of their rebounds % 
consequently getting in only 1 
shots at a time. „, 

Eddie Frazier was tops for \i •

Hoggard Thrills 
Music Students 

The First Intercollegiate Chorus 
Festival has passed, but the thrill of 
the experience and the memory of Dr. 
Hoggard will live with us for a 
long time. We, who were among those 
fortunate students participating in the 
event should be thankful for having 
been allowed to be a part of such a 
stirring performance. Suffice to say, 
our heads are still "above the clouds." 

We were all completely surprised 
and, I believe, a bit scared when Dr. 
Hoggard asked Fred Waring to direct 
us in our last two selections. 

Congratulations to the host, Prof. 
E. P. Rutledge and the committee 
which was composed of Miss Gillespie 
and Mr. Seiverling — Publicity; Prof. 
Carmean — Program ; Mr. Russel Shut- 
tlesworth, Music Supervisor of Har- 
risburg — Tickets; and Dr. Claude 
Rosenberry, Chief of Music Educa- 

tion in Pennsylvania. They did an 
excellent job. 

Mary Elizabeth Funck and "Ollie" 
Biely, duo-pianists, Chester Richwine, 
cornetist, and Ray Kauffman, flutist, 
highly deserved the praises which Dr. 
Hoggard and Mr. Waring gave them. 
The members of the LVC Band gave 
a highly professional performance in 
their position as accompaniment for 
many of the selections on the program, 
and our members of the chorus along 
with those from the other schools lit- 
erally "sang their hearts out." All 
in all it was an outstanding perform-

Tomorrow is Di-Day, Di-Johnson-Day . . . 

Hank Dijohnson — that powerhouse of football fury who plunged through 
many opposing lines to get that touchdown for the Valley, the guy with a fast 
feint on the basketball floor and the man who wields a mean catcher's mitt, the 
stocky, rugged, friendly guy from Lebanon — that's Hank and a sportsman 
m every bulging bicep. 

Born in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, in 1924, Hank attended Saint Mary's 
grammar School and Lebanon Catholic High School. In high school he 
Played basketball but did not begin his football career surprisingly enough 
until much later, after his entrance into Lebanon Valley. He was appointed, 
however, during his years in high school, athletic instructor to the grade 
school students. 

After graduation in '42 Hank worked for a time in the Bethlehem Steel 
tompany in his hometown, Lebanon. That was cut short when he was 
inducted into the Navy Air Corps in '43. While in the service Hank was in 
Ur egcn, Virginia, New Jersey, Florida, and Panama, and during his stay out 
w est was assigned as athletic instructor. 

Honorably discharged in '46 Hank with many other G.I.'s then entering 
oheges over the United States came to Lebanon Valley and enrolled as an 
Vacation major. 

One gets a pcture of a career wth Athlete written all through it.

Dutchmen Swamp F & M 
Drop Thriller To Moravian 

By Jim Pacy 

After dropping a heart-breaking 94- 
90 overtime thriller to Moravian Col- 
lege at Bethlehem on February 15, 
the Lebanon Valley College cagers 
played host to an inept Franklin & 
Marshall College quintet on Saturday 
night before approximately 2,30c- spec- 
tators in Lebanon. When the final 
buzzer was sounded the Flying Dutch- 
men recorded their ninth win of the 
season by easily outwitting the Dip- 
lomats 93-63 and boosted their sea- 
sonal average up to 75.3 points a game 
to remain as one of the highest scoring 
small college basketball teams in the 

Franklin & Marshall attempted to 
make the Dutchmen play their brand 
of ball in the first stanza by moving 
the sphere slowly and thus allowed 
the locals but a 14-12 first period lead. 
The Valley's class and ball-handling 
soon overcame the visitors from Lan- 
caster and LVC's combine outscored 
them 21-4 in the second chukker to 
move to a 35-16 bulge at half time. 
Big Al Murawski, the freshman sen- 
sation, along with Larry Kinsella, 
proved to be the major guns in the 
first half as they dropped in 13 and 
12 points respectively. The entire team 
however, presented their capabilities 
in this stage, as well as later through- 
out the contest, reeling off some plays 
that would prove tantalizing to any- 
one's basketball palate. This over all 
classiness was one of the main cogs 
in the wheel leaving the Dips far be- 
hind. Flashy Floyd Becker, who is 
one of the better ball players to come 
out of this region, stole the ball from 
an F & M dribblere in the waning 
seconds of the first half and dribbled 
furiously down the court with three 
visitors and diminutive Richie Furda 
right behind. Becker then stopped and 
flipped the ball back over his head 
right into the surprised hands of Fur- 
da who capitalized on the situation 
by laying it up for a deuce while 
the Franklin & Marshall players gaped 
on with awe. Such ball handling and 
taking kept the Lancasterians out of 
the ball game all night. 
"Big Bill" Tomilen Wows 'Em 

When the second half got underway, 
Murawski moved out to the guard 
position and "Big Bill" Tomilen took 
over the pivot spot. With plenty of 
encouragement from the stands and 
the ever present will to play good ball, 
"Big Bill" became the hero of the 
night by cutting the cords for nine 
markers in both of the last frames. 
All in all, Tomilen played a wonder- 
ful game and the Valley rooters were 
more than pleased with his best per- 
formance of the year. Becker contin- 
ued his torrid scoring in third por- 
tion also, as he blistered the basket 
with five field goals while Murawski, 
although playing barely a few min- 
utes, threw in three buckets. 

F & M "Nowhere" 

The Blue and White cagers ran 
rampant over the Diplomats in third 
session as they slashed the zone of 
the blue-clad's to shreds and scorched 
the nets for 30 points without too 
much effort to take a decisively com- 
manding 65-41 advantage going into 
the final session. Once again the Val- 
ley clicked on all cylinders and it 

was difficult to keep the score respec- 
table as the F & M basketeers were 
literally, "nowhere" and the Dutch- 
men registered goals from all parts of 
the floor to sew up the victory. 
- Co-captain Becker set the pace with 
his keen eye, parting the net for 24 
counters, while Tomilen accounted for 
18. Murawski pummelled the basket 
for 17 and Larry Kinsella played his 
usual dependable game of ball coming 
through with 16 markers. Co-captain 
Hnak Dijohnson, whose faking is as 
sterling as his gridiron play, plunked 
in 4 field goals for 8 points while 
Furda and "Chuck" Zimmerman 
scored 6 and 4 respectively. Curt 
Gallagher of the Dips came out on 
top as high man of the evening by 
dropping in 28 counters, while Bobby 
Zink, F & M's ballyhooed hot-shot, 
managed to rack up 12. 
Moravian Triumphs Despite 30 
by Murawski 
When an athlete with a good Polish 
name such as Murawski goes into 
the area around Bethlehem he is usu- 
ally well received, but you can bet 
your last quarter that our Al wasn't 
too popular with the Moravian rooters 
and followers last week when he sank 
thirty points that almost submerged 
Moravian in the overtime game that 
the Greyhounds won only after a hec- 
tic extra session. Murawski displayed 
a deadly hook shot during the course 
of the evening's events while his 
ball playing in general was excellent 
as he grabbed numerous rebounds and 
played the pivot position in yeoman 

The tussle opened with the Flying 
Dutchmen playing a fine style of 
basketball and building up a lead 
which soon gained such proportions 
and seemingly insurmountable odds 
that probably even the Moravian fans 
thought it was going to be a repeat 
performance of the 102-79 slaughter 
the Blue and White pinned on the 
Greyhounds when they visited Lebanon 
on January 14. The first quarter end- 
ed with Valleymen on the long end of 
a 27-15 lead and although Moravian 
rallied in the second chukker the 
Measemen, mainly on Becker's five 
field goals, still outpointed them 26-25 
to take a nice 53-40 lead at inter- 

Wieder, Toner and Werpehowski 
went to work with a determined rally 
to win for Moravian as the second 
half began and sliced LV's margin 
down to 69-62 at the three-quarter 
mark by out-countering the Dutchmen 
22-16 during the third period. The 
Greyhounds kept up their comeback 
as the finale opened and to add to 
the Valley's miserable situation, Eddie 
Frazier drew his fourth personal and 
then as Moravian took its initial lead 
of the night, 80-79, Kinsella had his 
fourth personal marked up ; all this 
calling for that much more careful 
ball playing during the tense race to 
the finish. Just as LVC got back on 
the van with an 82-80 headway Furda 
fouled out. The situation became 
more perplexing at 82-82 as Kinsella 
headed for the showers. A very short 
time before the regulation fray was 
up Werpehowski missed a foul at- 
tempt and Becker tried a desperate 
last second set which fell to the side 

Al Murawski, frosh star, Hipping in a left handed hook shot dur- 
ing the second quarter of the LVC-F&M fray on Saturday night as 
the Flying Dutchmen pulverized the Diplomats 93-63 for their mm 

as the buzzer sounded announcing 

Moravian scored first in the extra 
stanza which saw Frazier leave the 
floor with a foot injury almost im- 
mediately after the starting whistle. 
Murawski tied it up at 84-84 and 
Tomilen sent the Dutchmen to the 
fore by converting a pair of charity 
tosses for an 86-84 advantage. Muraw- 
ski tossed in a field goal and Dijohn- 
son countered on two free throws 
which gave the Valley what seemed a 
definite lead at 90-85. .Moravian how- 
ever just wouldn't go down and roar- 
ed back with two scores, and as the 
clock showed 33 seconds left LV had a 
skimpy 90-89 lead. This was wiped 
out when Becker fouled Stengele who 
mised the first try but sank the sec- 
ond to knot it at 90-all. From here 
on the game was lost. "Chuck" Zim- 
merman had a foul called against him 
after fierce protests by the Dutchmen, 
Moravian was awarded the foul along 
with three technicals. The Greyhounds' 
vetern guard Stengele stepped up to 
the foul line while the on-lookers 
stared with varied hopes as to the 
outcome of his attempts. Unfortunately 
for the Blue and White the Greyhound 
player threw in all four shots and 
thus w raped up the ball game. 

As was stated before, Murawski 
was high man for the visitors with 30 
while Becker hit for 19, Frazier for 
15 and Furda, 11. Toner came out 
as top-dog for the Greyhounds with 
26 markers, and Werpehowski fol- 
lowed by rimming 18. Stengele, Mor- 
avian's hero of the night, had 16. 

Junior Varsity Splits Pair of 

In the preliminary at Bethlehem. 
Coach Dick Fox's Junior Varsity ag- 
gregation fought off a Moravian rally 
in the second half and thereby muz- 
zled the little Greyhounds 61-60 to 
set the stage for the close finish of the 
varsity battle. Joe Oxley pushed in 
17 markers to lead the Little Dutch- 
men whde Ray Dankowski, Leon 

Miller and Robin Moore all ran? 
the bell nine times. Williamson rack- 
ed up 13 for Moravian. 

Franklin & Marshall salvaged some 
pride for itself as the F & M under- 
studies subdued the Valley^ Junior* 
by a 46-42 count. Once again Oxle) 
led the Foxmen with 11 points while 
Moore and Jim Hanley banged up 9 
and Jim Colluci collected 8. Lenz was 
the reason for the visitors' win wit" 
23 dunkers.

Notice: Video Comes 
To the White House 

The Administration has reopened Washington Hall to offer to all Leb- 
anon Valley students Tuesday and Thursday night television shows. 

The new R.C.A. set is to be operated by Mrs. Shroyer from 7 to 10 
o'clock on the designated evenings. If the student body shows favorable 
response to the T.V., the Hall will probably be opened on all week nights. 

The other recreational facilities, that is ping-pong, checkers, cards, will 
also be available to those interested. Bridge lamps will be installed to alleviate 
any unnecessary light on the television set. 

Because T.V. stations do not offer programs before four o'clock in the 
afternoon and classes are being conducted in Washington Hall at this hour, 
the set will not be available for student use in the afternoon. 

In the case of special affairs, however, arrangements will be made to 
open the Hall for those interested. 

It has also been announced by the campus governing bodies that rec 
hour will be open on Tuesday and Thursday night from 6:30 to 7:30 in the 
College gym.

General Mud was overrated in Rus- 
sia. He can't hold a candle to Captain 
Coagulated Clay of Lebanon Valley 
College. Had Hitler fought in spring 
battles in Annville, he undoubtedly 
would have been accredited as the 
first naval commander to retreat ap- 
proximately 200 miles into the inter- 

Annville precipitation is matched 
only by its lack of absorption. Some- 
body should tell the East Coast Sea- 
gull Association about this wonderful 
inland resort. "Spend the winter in 
central Pa. All fresh water facilities. 
Guarantee no Sharks." 

The Rains Came and stayed. Snow 
and fog for holidays. We have temp- 
erature too. The thermometer expen- 
diture is terrific. In the summer 
housewives leave the kitchen door 
open and check the oven guage. If 
the milk freezes on Sunday (no alco- 
hol thermometers, y'know . . . Pennsy 
Blue-law), the kiddies iceboat home 
from church. 

Capital punishment for wayward 
pets is to spend the night outside. 
Anticipation of the unforeseen will

All kidding aside I like it here. You

College Orch and Pianist 
Freeland Program Tonight 

D. Clark Car mean, 

Merl Freeland, 

The Lebanon Valley College Orchestra, under the baton of Professor D. 
Clark Carmean, will present its annual concert on Thursday, March 9, at 
8:15 P.M. in Engle Hall. Professor Merl Freeland, piano professor, will be 
the guest soloist. 

_ Professor Freeland will play three Chopin numbers : a valse, a nocturne, 
with the exception of his years in the service during the second World War, 
studied at the University of Oklahoma and then taught at the University 
for ten years. He studied privately under Madame Olga Samaroff-Stokowski, 
famed pianist, for four years. 

Professor Freeland will play htree Chopin numbers, a valse, a nocturne, 
ar >d a scherzo, and Brahms Intermezzi-Opus 117, No. 2, and Opus 119, No. 3. 

Among the many well-chosen numbers that the college orchestra will 
present is Tchaikowsky's Symphony Pathetique, Secotid Movement, Allegro 
c "n G'razia-. This movement is written in the unusual meter of 5/4 (hye 
Pu'ses to each measure), and is considered one of the loveliest bits of music 
Ula t the famed composer has written. 

Another featured work will be Divertissement by Ibert. A satire on music 
" general, it contains what might be termed a nocturne, a processional, a 

ru para( ^ e march, with appropriate side remarks by various instruments. 
{ lhe final number will be the Concerto in E Flat by Liszt. This work* 
eatures both Mr. Freeland and the orchestra. The concerto is often referred 
° a s the Triangle Concerto because the triangle is featured in the Scherzo 
m °vement.

Conserv Notes . . . 

By Bob Rhein 

Doris Eckert and Annette Read will be the featured soloists in a number 
of concerts to be given by the Bethlehem Steel Chorus of Lebanon. This 
Friday evening, March 10, the group will perform in Lebanon High School. 
"Dori" will sing five solos, including an operatic aria and Rubenstein's 
"Romanze." It is hoped that she will have recovered from an attack of the 
grippe sufficiently in order to perform. "Toni" will sing "The Italian Street 
Song," a number which is so highly popular on the Glee Club's program 

There will be a public recital in Engle Hall, of the Lebanon Valley 
College Conservatory, on Tuesday, March 14. Featured in the program will 
be Richard Kline, pianist ; Mary Elizabeth Funck, pianist ; Robert Smith, 
organist ; Pierce Getz, pianist ; Chester Richwine, cornetist, accompanied by 
Pierce Getz, pianist ; and Barbara Kleinfelter, pianist. Selections by a clarinet 
ensemble are scheduled tentatively for the program . . . 

Mr. D. Clark Carmean, Dean of Admissions, was host to the members of 
Reading High School's "Future Teachers of America" club, upon their visit 
here on February 28, 1950. Serving with Mr. Carmean on the welcoming 
committee, was Dave Gockley and Dr. Fritz K. Miller . . . Upon arrival, 
the visitors were taken to the chapel for services, following which they 
were guests of the college for lunch. A tour of the campus and science lab- 
oratories followed. The students then were adjourned to convene for depart- 
mental interviews of their own interest. Miss Gillespie conducted the inter- 
view for the music department; Mr. McKlveen, education; Dr. Struble, 
English; Dr. Erickson, mathematics. In the evening, the guests gathered 
in Kalo Hall for a recital which was presented by Robert Fisher, violinist, 
accompanied by Pierce Getz, pianist ; George Ritner, tenor, accompanied by 
Richard Kline, pianist ; Mary Elizabeth Funck, pianist ; and the clarinet quar- 
tette consisting of Jack Snavely, William Cagnoli, Richard Stewart, and Mel 
Schiff. Dr. Miller made the brief farewell speech and the visit was brought 
to a close. The success of this program has instigated Albright College 
to incorporate this idea, with proper elaboration, into their plans for the 
very near future. 

Intellects Perform 
In Faculty Follies 

A new campus feature will be pre- 
sented by the faculty on Saturday 
night, March ii, at 7:30, in Engle

Wolfgang, McKlveen, Keller, Craw- 
ford, Rutledge, Light, Fields, Struble 
and Mr. Donmoyer (of the Faculty 
Fatties), Mr. Gockley, and Mr. Rob- 

The star-studded show is open to 
all who come without the conventional 
ripe fruit or rotten eggs and to all 
those who promise to applaud after 
each act. 

Staff for the '52 
Quittie Selected 

The staff of the 1952 Quittapahilla

Who's Who 

in the Conserv 

Miss Isabelle Haescler, the attractive, naturally blond, wavy-haired senior 
conservite from Bloomfield, New Jersey, is this week's choice for who's who 
in the conservatory. 

Belle, as she is commonly "tagged," attended Bloomfield High School 
and there played first flute in the school orchestra and band. Upon graduation 
from high school she went on to study music at Oberlin College specializing 
in organ under the instruction of Miss Claire Coci. 

Belle transferred to Lebanon Valley at the end of her sophomore year. 
Since her sojurn here she has appeared in three recitals and is preparing for 
a full organ recital in May. Belle, who has studied organ for seven years, 
is noted for her brilliant powers of memorization. 

In 1043 she was presented with a plaque from the Griffith Music Founda- 
tion for having achieved the highest honors in the intermediate class of an 
organ contest. She also received a certificate of merit from the Trinity Col- 
lege, London, England, for having gained the highest grade in the advanced 
piano division in a contest conducted by Sir Granville Bantock, president 
of Trinity College. 

This week's who's who has been president of West Hall for two years 
and is a member of the Girls' Band. Her ambition is to become an organ 
teacher in a junior or senior college. 

To the girl with the "golden locks" goes heartiest congratulations for 
her fine accomplishments in the past and sincere good wishes for the things 
she will do in the future.

Psych Students Take 
Eastern Field Trip 

Sixteen students of the Clinical Psy- 
chology class and their professor, Dr. 
Clara C. Cooper, returned last Thurs- 
day, March 2, from a two-day tour 
of the clinical laboratories of the 
Vineland Training School, Temple 
University, University of Pennsylvan- 
ia, and Albright College. 

The purpose of the tour was to 
acquaint the students with the actual 
working environment of the clinical 
psychologist and also to see the oppor- 
tunities open for graduate work in 
that field. 

Leaving campus at 7:30 A.M. on 
Wednesday morning, March 1st, the 
class arrived about noon at Vineland, 
New Jersey, where they were ex- 
pected for lunch. At the Training 
School, which is an institution for the 
feeble-minded, the students observed 
the various clinical types and were 
given two brief lectures by the heads 
of the laboratory. Following a tour 
the class was invited to attend a 
program presented by the feeble- 
minded children. Here, the psycholo- 
gists-to-be witnessed the capabilities 
of the mentally defective children. 

The next stop for the travelers was 
Temple University in Philadelphia. 
After eating dinner in the University 
cafeteria, the students were conducted 
through the psychological labs. An 
explanation of the apparatus used in 
diagnosing and overcoming reading 
defects was the high spot of the even- 

After spending the night at the 
Central Y.M. in Philadelphia, the 
class started on Thursday morning 
with a visit to the University of 
Pennsylvania. The students were 
greeted by a head of the department 
and conduted through the clinical, ex- 
perimental and research labs, receiving 
explanations of various apparatus and 
methods as the tour proceeded. The 
highlight of the morning was a dem- 
onstration of the Stanford Benet Intel, 
ligence test given to a retarded child 
while the L.V.C. students watched in 
a one-way vision room. In this man- 
ner, the students were able to see and 
hear the examination, but the child 
was unaware of their presence. 

Following lunch, the students trav- 
eled again to Reading, making their 
last stop at Albright . Here, the class 
was interested in observing the clini- 
cal advantages available in a small 
college. A demonstration was given 
here of the Wechsler-Bellebue Test 
by a senior psych major of the host 

The group returned to L.V. Thurs- 
day evening. Members of the Clinical 
class who journeyed with the group 
included Dr. Clara Cooper, instructor 
Miriam Keller, John Bedell, Robert 
Eigenbrode, Donald Steinberg, Ruth 
Kramer, Peg Bower, Merna Shcnk 
Vivian Werner, Andy Renner, Ralph 
Roberts Ken Kirkpatrick, Clayton

The men, according to reports, basked 
contentedly in the sidelines as the 
faculty femmes strode, with great 
success, to entertain them.

I L a Vie Collegienne, Thursday, March 9, 1950 






By Bill Fisher 

MR. B. and MR. D. 

Those initials, if yen will recall, set the sports world agog several years 
ago, from '43 to '46 to be exact. That's how they styled Army's immortal 
"Doc" Blanchard and Glenn Davis. Mr. B. and Mr. D. 

It's those very same initials, Mr. B. and Mr. D., that prompts us to return 
to the pages of La Vie to do another column. 

To me, and I'm sure to most of you, our own Mr. B — Becker, and Mr. 
D— Dijohnson, will linger long in our memories ages after the fabulous 
Blanchard and Davis fade from mind. 

To Lebanon Valley there will never be another Becker and Dijohnscn. 
What a twosome ! Tops by anyone's standards. 

. . . and all that sort of thing 

We offer this column for those who believe in sentiment, nostalgia, rem- 
iniscence, and all that sort of thing. The still vivid picture of Beck and 
Hank making LV sports history by the wholesale brings back the urge to do 
an article on them "just one more time." 

It hardly seems possible that their four year record run of college ball 
is about to end. But with our last basketball game and "DiDay" now passed, 
the sudden realization strikes that the last chapter of two of the most 
glamorous and colorful careers in LV sports history is about to close. 

It's getting to be that every time we take the lid off our typewriter the 
(<eys automatically strike D-i-J-o-h-n-s-o-n. We've thumbed our thesauri thin 
in search of adjectives to describe Hank's legendary years at the Valley, and 
still can't do him justice. 

The fact_ is, the accolades paid Hank by President Lynch and the ear- 
spntting ovation rendered him after Ray Kline so aptly introduced "Lebanon 
Valley and its Hank Dijohnson," to the crowd on"Di-Day" was the most 
stiring tribute that could be paid anyone. Coach Mease, upon retiring Hank's 
], erse y> summed it up perfectly with that well-worn and time-honored phrase ; 
« couldn't happen to a better guy." 

As for Becker ; his record-shattering basketball performance more firmly 
convinces us that he is among the five best basketballers in the state, and 
easily the best player in Central Pennsylvania — Anlian, Harris, Foster, ct. al.

A Fascinating Formula 

Becker has established his claim to Valley fame with some of the most 
spellbinding basketball we ever hope to see. Don't do the ordinary when you 
can do the spectacular, seems to have been Floyd's fascinating formula for 
basketball success. 

In becoming the first LV player to score 1,000 points — he scored 1,016 — 
Becker was a perfect picture of the smart, the poised, the polished basketball 

There was comething awe-inspiring about Becker's play. He could always 
be relied upon to do things differently, and do them spectacularly. As a 
ball-handler and set-shot, he was so good we simply took his play for granted. 
If he pulled the sensational, and many, many times he did, that was the 
expected thing. After all, it was Bedker, wasn't it? Indeed a fitting tribute 
to a great player. 

Floyd's record will stand to establish his ranking as one our all-time 
basketball greats. But you can throw the record book away and just let 
memory recreate that familiar scene of Becker on the court over the past 
four years. 

That baggy white T-shirt under his jersey, hair never mussed, loping up 
and down the* floor, swift set shooting, awkward one-handers, ultra-fancy 
passing, tricky faking. These scenes, year after year, game after game, 
stirred the fans who rent his ears with cheers and jeers. 

How can we ever forget him? 


Over the past four years Becker and Dijohnson have shared the spotlight 
together. They have made hero-worshippers of us all. Their names have 
become synonymous with Lebanon Valley athletics. As L.V.'ers, we are 
extremely proud of their accomplishments. 

As for the future — who knows? 

Hank has had offers from several Class B and C baseball clubs. He 
is in line for a tryout with the Los Angeles Rams of the National Profess- 
ional Football League. And he also has ideas about going on to school to get 
a degree in Physical Education. 

Beck is contemplating either playing pro, teaching or coaching. He is in 
line for a tryout with the Waterloo Hawks of the National Professional 
Basketball League. 

But no matter what they choose or whee they go, Becker and Dijohnson 
will always be remembered at Lebanon Valley. They are a terrific team — a 
great team ! 

It is going to hurt to see them go. 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, March 9, 

Dutchgirls Trample 
Susquehanna 48-27 

The Susquehanna University's wo- 
men's basketbal team travelled to 
Lebanon Valley College last Saturday 
to suffer a 48-27 defeat on the local 
floor. Four wins and four losses con- 
stitute the L.V. lassies' record ; there 
are three more games to be played on 
the current schedule. These are : Eliz- 
abethtown (away) on Thursday, 
March 9; Penn Hall (away) on Sat- 
urday March 1 1 ; and Albright, 
(home) on Thursday, March 16. 

Susquehanna took the opening toss- 
In but failed to score. After a min- 
ute of play Susquehanna scored on a 
foul shot. From then on the Dutch - 
girls took over the reins and held 
command for the remainder of the 
game. Lebanon Valley led at the 
quarter-time 12-6. The Blue and 
White guards held the visiting for- 
wards to 4 points while the Valley 
forwards accounted for 12 points, 
making the half-time score 28-10. 

The visitors staged a slight come- 
back during the second half, but were 
unable to overcome the stronger Leb- 
anon Valley sextet. The Valley ended 
the game on the Ion gend of a 48-27 

the game on the long end of a 48-27 
Dutchgirls are Hutchinson, 25 ; Wit- 


mer, 10; MacFarland, 8; and Edel- 
man, 5. 

Varsity players included Helen 
MacFarland, Betty Edelman, Jeanne 
Hutchinson, Dotty Witmer, Betts Sli- 
fer, Libby Roper, Joyce Hammock, 
Margaret Anders, and Wilma Stam- 

Frosh Rip Sophs in 
Ax League, 44-33 

Paced by Tarantolo, Frazier, and 
Sawyer the Frosh handed the Sophs 
a convincing 44-33 trouncing in the 
fifth game of their best-out-of-seven 
series which will decide the Day 
Student championship. The victory 
enabled the Yearlings to take a 3-2 
edge in the series and they are 
slightly favored to whip the Soph 
combine the next time the two meet. 
The Sophs are led by the "Triple S's", 
namely, Shaak, Schirato, and Sala- 
mandra. Shaak is currently leading 
the scoring derby with 69 points in 
five games while Schirato follows 
close behind with 63. Frazier is the 
big gun for the well-balanced Frosh 
team, having scored 58 points in his 
five games. 

The winner of the playoffs will 
meet the Dorm Champs in the pre- 
liminary game to the Student-Faculty 
game on Friday night to decide the 
intramural championship of LVC. 

Dutchmen Close Season j 
By Dumping Upsala 86-81 

By Jim Pacy 

Coach Ralph Mease's Lebanon Val- 
ley College eager s brought their cur- 
rent campaign to a close on Wednes- 
day evening by defeating Upsala Col- 
lege 86-81 before approximately 2,300 
persons in Lebanon. Two of Lebanon 
Valley's foremost athletes, Henry Di- 
Johnson and Floyd Becker, "sang" 
their collegiate "swan songs" in highly 
impressive fashion as Dijohnson was 
honored with "Di Day" and Becker 
became the first LVC eager to score 
over 1,000 points by racking up 25 
to end his college court career with 
1,016 markers. 

Upsala raced off to a fast lead, be- 
ing out front the majority of the first 
period. The Dutchmen however cut 
their margin to 15-17 mainly on the 
seven points of Larry Kinsella before 
the beginning stanza drew to a close. 
Fd Frazier and Kinsella set the pace 
in the second session as the Mease 
crew out-pointed the New Jerseyans 
28-20 to take a 43-37 advantage during 

The locals kept pouring it on in the 
third stanza as the flashy Becker siz- 
zled the hoops for 13 registrations to 
prove his worth as one of the better 
college players in Pennsylvania. LVC 
thus entered the finale with a com- 
manding 64-51 bulge. Monte Berman, 
who played a wonderf il game for 
the Norsemen all night, took charge 

for Upsala in the last stanza as h' 
sent 12 points through the badul 
setting up a Viking rally which j 
the East Orangers' out-goal t- 
Dutchmen 30-22 to make the closii|' 
minutes a thrilling finis. Lot. 
Valley however, executed a cte 
freeze and time ran out as the Bit 
& White wound up the season wit 
their twelfth win in twenty starts 

Becker, as was previously state: 
flipped in 25 points in his final roi: 
for Lebanon Valley, while Larry Kir, 
sella, the dependable junior, althou?! 
playing with an eye affliction, si 
managed to drop in 17. Al Mur.wsli 
who was the freshman wonder of t 
squad, played another good gam 
parting the cords for 15, while Eddi: 
Frazier banged up 11. Richie Fuii 
the promising guard from New Jer- 
sey, swished in 10, while the honors: 
Dijohnson and Red Langstaff ac- 
counted for four apiece. 

Berman of Upsala took high scor- 
ing honors for the fray with 27 point 
and was followed by Sandy Wolfe 
who's sharpshcoting brought him 17 
Team mate Ed Little hit for 13. 

Coach Dick Fox's Jay Vee aggre- 
gation registered their thirteenth wir. 
by trouncing the Viking proteges $ 
41. Joe Oxley was high man forth 
Dutchboys with 18, while R obir 
Moore sank 16 snd Leon Miller threw 
in 11. Bissett was high for the Norse 
understudies with 18.

After a play-reading marathon the 
Philo-Clio Societies' thespians have 
settled on Noel Coward's snappy little 
comedy, Hay Fever, as their contri- 
bution to the 1950 theatrical parade. 
A fast-moving, sophisticated take of 
life with an aging actress, Hay Fever 
!s a sort of Anglicized Yon Can't 
T °ke It with You."

education department, will direct the 
P' a y, which will be presented in Engle

Faculty Frolics in Shades 
Of Satire Last Saturday 

The first "Faculty FOLLIES" to be presented on Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege campus was a howling success Saturday, March II. The talent along 
faculty row is amazing and the witnesses of the weekend performance can 
vouch for the statement. 

Professor Carl Ehrhart was a most genial master of ceremonies. His 
program notes were most original and entertaining. He first introduced 
Librarian Donald Fields who opened the program with an organ solo. He is 
definitely conserv material ! 

George Struble-directed "If Men Played Cards as Women Do," was an 
excellent satire on the typical female bridge game, gossip and all. Those males 
(if the cast were Professors Shay, McKlveen, Keller and Rev. Gockley. 

The rendition of "Rag-Mop" by the Wolfgang and Ehrhart couples 
brought forth enough applause to warrant their encore, "I Said My Pajamas." 
Sugar-Rog Robinson literally "beat the drum" in a display of 1776 street beats 
(For the benefit of the non-conservites, a street beat is the drum beat the 
men of a corp march to.) 

Faculty Fatties' Manager Dunmoyer and Cheerleader Mrs. Dunmoyer's 
duo rendition of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" was of Hollywood caliber. Imagine 
having movie talent right on L.V.'s campus! 

Professor "Sandy" Crawford took the audience with him to the mid-west 
for his readings of Barbara Fritchic, Excelsior, and Paul Revere in the 
native Swedish dialect. Yumpin' Yimminy it ban goot! Professor E. P. 
Rutledge and son George played a clarinet and comet duet, taking turns on 
each instrument and climaxing their act with a "I'll-hold-this-one-and-blow- 
this-one" routine worthy of the loud acclaims the audience gave them. 

Professor McKlveen, Swami Salami Gockley and Swami Salami, Junior, 
Smith, delved into the world of mystery and came up with answers that would 
have made Dunninger green with envy. 

The entire cast appeared in the grand finale, "The Silly Symphony." The 
original lyrics which Professors Light, Richie, Kretzinger, Rev. Gockley and 
Air Dunmoyer added to the favorite Ol' Susanna were something for the 
books. Miss Houtz audiably displayed her talents as she punctuated the 
performance periodically. 

When the curtain closed for the last time, the howling audience thanked 
their peS with thundrous rounds of applause that meant-"Let's have more 
[•'acuity Follies." 

YW Plans Final for 
Mothers' Weedend 

Tomorrow will open another annual 
Mothers' week-end program sponsored 
by the Y.W.C.A. cabniet. For those 
mothers who will be on campus and 
all Lebanon Valley students, there will 
be an open house in Washintgon Hall 
Recreation Hall from 8-10 :30 on Fri- 
day evening, March 17. This program 
will serve as a short introductory 
welcome to the mothers. There will 
be some entertainment followed by 
television shows. 

Mothers' week-end has been in ex- 
istence for some time and was origin- 
ated in order to give mothers a chance 
to visit informally with their daugh- 
ters on campus and to get a glimpse 
of college life. 

Saturday, March 18, Mrs. Lynch 
will be hostess to the mothers and 
daughters at a tea in her home from 
2 to 4 o'clock. At six o'clock LVC 
men wil serve the banquet to the girls 
and their guests in the college dining 
hall. Miss Evelyn Strickler will be 
the after dinner speaker. Also listed 
on the after-dinner program are group 
songs to be led by Barbara Kleinfelter 
and several vocal selections to be 
given by the Delphian Quartet con* 
sisting of Mary Edelman, Doris Eck- 
ert, Anne Shroyer, and Annette Reed. 

La Vie Staff and the entire stu- 
dent body of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege extend their sympathies to 
Gerald Miller, college junior, on 
the death of his father on March 
?, 1950.

123 Students Take 
Scholarship Tests 

On Friday, March 10, a grand total 
of 123 high school students and veter- 
ans visited our campus to compete in 
the annual scholarship competition. 
The educational prizes were : four 
full-time scholarships, four l / 2 , and 
eight $100 scholarships. Competitors 
arrived from four states . Delaware, 
New Jersey, Maryland, and Pennsyl- 
vania. They ranked, in relative num- 
ber, 4, 15, 2, and 102. The Conserv 

claimed 48 of these, the math depart- 
ment 20, the history dept. 19, English 
17, biology 4, and foreign languages 
the remainder. 

On Saturday, the visitors wound 
up their stay with a tour conducted 
by the members of the Y cabinets and 
the students who assisted in the schol- 
arship weekend program. During their 
stay, they witnessed the colossal strug- 
gle between the Faculty and the All- 
Stars on Friday night. (Too bad they 
couldn't have remained for the Fac- 
ulty Follies of '50 on Saturday night.) 

Habadaber Speaks \ Muchas Gracias 

Dear Mr. Moppentott, I am a young 
lady and a student on the campus of 
Lebanon Valley College and I am 
faced with a problem. Because I am 
a bit absentmnided I find myself with 
four dates for Saturday night. Bill 
has looks but no money, Art has mon- 
ey but no looks, Don has both, and 
Phil has neither. What shall I do? 

Bewildered Babe 

My dear bewildered Babe, the solu- 
tion is simple. Merely arrange a game 
of cut-throat canasta for Friday night 
with the four young men in question, 
as the only participants. The situa- 
tion will follow a pattern I assure 
you. They will play for money of 
course because those who have every- 
thing will want more and those who 
have nothing will naturally want 
something. Dan will win all the mon- 
ey because "them as 'has' 'gets' ", Art 
will call Dan a cheat and will prob- 
ably try to murder Dan because Art 
is a tightwad. Dan will slug Phil 
and Bill because neither will have 

On behalf of the Student-Faculty 
Council, I wish to thank those of the 
Faculty and student body who so gen- 
erously gave toward the Di-Day fund. 
I especially wish to thank the Senior 
Class for its contribution that enabled 
the goal of one hundred dollars to be 

It was only the support and active 
participation of a sizeable portion of 
the students that made it possible to 
reward "Hammerin' Hank" for his 
athletic contributions to LVC. Through 
those efforts, it made the day for 
Hank one which he will always "cher- 
ish .. . and never forget."

everyone losing. But where does that

Campus Chatter . . . 

Back again for another swing at the social life on campus — after 
who could miss that week-end of all week-ends — when a mere stud 
can laugh at a faculty member — and get away with it? ... the whole af 
was off to a rousing start on Friday night when coach, manager, captain, 
towel-boy, water-boy, and star player CLAUDE R. DONMOYER called his 
battered legions together for their brave stand against the All STARS, 
. . . "MANGLER" MILLER turning in his usual creditable performance 
. . . DICK FOX causing quite a sensation in those loud shorts . . . RALPH 
MEASE needing those 16 fouls . . . vote for a good sport to DR. RICHIE. 

As for the Saturday night entertainment — all agree that the show was 
worth the price of admission — one good laugh per act . . . "RAG MOP" 
EHRHART getting a rousing reception in his classes on Monday . . 
PROF WOLFGANG mopping up the unfinished discussion . . . ROGER 
ROBINSON receiving countless offers to double for Gene Krupa . . . under- 
stand MISS HOUTZ is running him a close second . . . DR. LIGHT will 
act as advisor for the Conservatory for the spring musicale . . . MRS. 
SMITH earning a new nickname of "Swami Salami Junior . . , PROF 
CRAWFORD bringing down the house ... so the weekend ended with all 
the tired faculty members limping home to rest their aching bodies and 
saying, "Never again— until next year" . . . which is not soon enough.

There is on every college campus—there has to be— those students who 
form the backbone of the system, the foundation. In other words the people 
who come in for a great deal of the work and very little of the glory. Where 
would we be without them ? Steady, dependable, talented, and always right on 
hand whenever they are needed; doing the job and doing it well without 
any complaints. Jan Eppley comes under such a laudable category. 

Jan, to include just a few of her activities, is on the "Jiggerboard"' and 
Student Faculty Council. She is a zealous Clionian and in her Junior year 
was on the Quittie staff. A French major, the French Club has, of course, 
been included in her list of campus activities. For many years she has been 
an enthusiastic member of the YWCA and Y Cabinet on Campus and this 
year she was elected to the responsible position of YW president. In con- 
nection with this she has, in the past, worked with the Religious Co-ordinating 

As president of the YWCA Jan holds down one of the biggest jobs on 
camrus ihe Y's are a hard-working organization and do much of that very 
necessary behind-the-scenes work that it takes to keep any performance 
running smoothly, even college. Few of us realize the important part that the 
Y's play in lives of all of us at L.V.C. 

This smiling friendly, helpful gal from Mechanicsburg is our choice 
for the Senior of the Week. She exemplifies the very qualities that have 
made us what we like to think we are— the Friendly College. Whether in 
the field of teaching or whatever Jan may choose to do, she is sure to be a 
worthy addition to any community. Good luck in future years, Jan. ihe 
Valley needs more like you.

Baseball Returns to LVC 
Sportlight Once Again 

The Lebanon Valley College baseball squad has two opponents staring 
it in the face before the first 1950 contest opens with Juniata at Huntingdon 
on April 15. They are weather and time. Baseball Coach Ralph Mease said 
on Monday that those two elements would be the deciding factors in the 
schedule of practices before the diamond season begins. 

As yet practice has been called for the pitchers and catchers only and 
these have been just slight workouts held daily in the college gym since 
Monday afternoon. Mease stated that the entire team would begin work as 
soon as old man weather permits them to take to the field^ 

As far as he team itself is concerned, versatile Fred tore will be back 
on the mound for the Flving Dutchmen again and undoubtedly will cdme in 
for his share of the Valley victories. Fred was the outstanding pitcher last 
year and Mease expects to call on him many times during the coming pitch- 
and-hit tussles. The other returning hurler is Larry Kinsella, who, if he 
gains better control over his wicked fast ball, will be an efficient hurler. 

Behind the plate for his fourth consecutive season will be the sterling and 
exceptionally capable Henry "Hank" Dijohnson who not only proves his 
worth as an excellent catcher but also as a power-laden hitter. 

The Blue and White will miss Bobby Hess, last year's sensational short- 
stop who was lost to the infield by graduation. Coach Mease will also have 
to find a replacement for first, or third depending upon which Chuck 
Zimmerman will be called on to play this year. Neal Woll, however, will be 
back at second base. , A , 

In the outfield, at the left field position, Shorty Fields is counted on to 
return along with Floyd Becker last season's center fielder. Others who saw 
action 'in the outfield last year and who are expected to return are Fred Samp- 
le, Dale Shellenberger, and Sherdell Snyder, all of whom are expected to see 
a'great deal of action during the forthcoming campaign. 

Freshman and other classmen who did not play last year will be reporting 
for practice eventually and some are expected to do well due to promising 
reports of their showings in high school and elsewhere. 

Brains vs. Brawn- 
Profs Amaze All-Stars 

By Neil Timberlin 

Perhaps Profs don't lead as seden- 
tary life as we shavetails are prone 
to suspect. Our all-stars had to Jive 
up to their name to rate the official 
tally of 48-33 in their favor. 

The faculty showed great possibili- 
ties, both fore and aft. Though handi- 
capped as a team by lack of team- 
work, the solo maneuvers were out 
of this world. "DD" Donmoyer thor- 
oughly confused the opposition with 
his treacherous sleight-of-hand. 
"Mauler" Mease combined forces with 
"Sugar Roge" to give 26 points to 
the team and a wonderful demonstra- 
tion of cross-field blocking to the 
crowd Though out-weighed, "Snarl- 
ing Carl" held his own." "Nuclear 
Fission" Neidig, "Shotgun" Shay, 
"Marvelous Marve" Wolfgang really 
showed 'em how to get off and on 
that ol' bench. As for "GAR" Richie, 
what is there to say? He passed 
under fire. 

The all-stars played a fast passing 
game, successfully designed to un- 
balance faculty defense. Nick Bova 
was high man with 10 points, and 
Norm Lukens and Dick Salamandra 
tied for second with eight apiece. 

On the whole it made for a thor- 
oughly enjoyable evening. I speak 
for most of the crowd in saying that 
I'm mighty glad it wasn't me tangling 
with that educated mass of muscle.

By Betty Bakcly 

The senior personality for this week 
is that dignified and distinguished- 
looking man-about-campus, Alex Fehr. 

Looking as if he has just stepped 
out of a White House conference, 
briefcase and all, this poised, friendly, 
well-groomed, and obviously well- 
informed personage is a worthy addi- 
tion to the roster of Lebanon Valley 

A political science major, Al has 
been active for many years in the 
Political Science Club. Last year he 
was LV's nominee for the Speaker 
of the Intercollegiate Conference on 
Government held in Harrisburg. The 
high importance of this honor speaks 
for itself. 

In connection with his Political Sci- 
ence Club activities Al wrote a week- 

ly column in La- Vie on timely local 
and national problems. The subjects 
which he discussed in his column, 
entitled Fehr Enough, covered a broad 
variety of topics. They showed an 
interesting and informative flair in 
both content and treatment. 

Perhaps the fact that Al is a fami- 
ly man has had a stabilizing effect 
on his career. At any rate his achieve- 
ments have been praiseworthy and 

As for his plans concerning the fu- 
ture, Al has his sights set on a posi- 
tion as history professor. Perhaps he 
will devote, also more study on the 
problems of management and labor 
which interest him. Whatever the 
field of endeavor the Valley wishes 
him clear sailing and "Fehr" weather. 

Great Books 

The Annville Library will sponsor 
another Great Books Discussion on 
Wednesday, March 29, at 4 P.M. in 
the town library. Reviews will be 
given by Lebanon Valley's Professor 
Ehrhart on Aeschylus' Prometheus 
Bound and the Book of Job from the 
Old Testament. The subject to be 
discussed is the problem of evil. The 
people of Annville and all students of 
the College are cordially invited to 
attend and to remain for refreshments 
which will be served following the 

Six LVC Faculty 
Members Attend E.C. 

The University of Scranton was 
host to delegates attending an Educa- 
tional Conference last Saturday after- 
noon, March 18, 1950. The theme of 
the conference was "General Educa- 
tion" and the principal speaker, Dr. 
Earl J. McGrath, United States Com- 
missioner of Education, spoke to the 
delegates on "Science in General Edu- 
cation." Dean A. H. M. Stonecipher, 
Professors George G. Struble, How- 
ard A. Neidig, Ralph S. Shay, and 
Gilbert McKlveen are those who at- 
tended from Lebanon Valley. 

Campus Chatter . . . 

Spring is here ! You can tell by those "Keep Off the Grass" signs whic 
seem to have sprung up overnight. And to give us all "something" to do 
our profs keep throwing those so called "quizes" at us from all direction; 
So put away those hiking shoes and those "ideas" and "hit the books !" (Ju; 
whom are we trying to kid?) 

Seems the weather is not warm enough for a certain group in the Men's 
Dorm who had their own little fire in their room — those poor Day Studem 
gals suffering from that new rule — roller-skating becoming one of the newes 
fads among the Valley-ites (Hank Di Johnson can even jitterbug on skates)- 
Joannie Orlando and Jim Geiselheart a new steady — also see a lot of Betty 
Miller and George Rutledge — "Fuzzy" dating Peg Rook again — Ruth Ami 
Brown's man visiting about campus — Barret Oxley and Nick Bova sportin? 1 
new "crew-cuts" (afraid of getting bald, Nick?) — 'television in the Rec Hal: 
going over in a big way — the "Canasta Crew" from South Hall even going to 
Jonestown for a game — those sharp-looking pins belong to proud Delphian 
members — Congrats to Al Murawski : for making Moravian's All-Opponent 
team — Al by the way, scored 49 points in a Gold Medal Tourney basketball 
contest last week — that's right, 49 points ! — Question of the week : In which 
position will we find the faculty table in the dining room next week?

are attractive gold triangles with the 
society's Greek letters on a small 
black onyx in the center. They were 
purchased with or without pearls or 

The activities of the Society are at 
a standstill now after their successful 
Kalo-Delphian weekend, but plans 
are still going forward for more ac- 
tivities in the future. 

The two societies request that all

Conservatory Pianist 
In Solo Appearance 

Margaret Barthel (Baxtresser), 
Lebanon Valley College's brilliant 
young Professor of Piano, will present 
her second piano recital this year in 
the Engle Hall Conservatory of Mus- 
ic, Monday, March 27, at 8:15 P.M. 
The public is cordially invited to at- 
tend and there is no charge for 

Miss Barthel started playing the 
piano at the age of three. At five, 
she began serious study and has con- 
tinued her studies without cessation 
since then. Most of her childhood was 
spent in Detroit, where she made her 
first appearance. 

Although she had appeared in con- 
certs from the time she was eight 
years old, her first major performance 
was with the Detroit Symphony Orch- 
estra when she was thirteen. She 
played the Schumann Concerto with, 
to quote the critics, "complete aplomb 
and authority . . . and displayed the 
prowess and poise of a full-grown 
artist." Another event was her ap- 
pearance a year later, as the assist- 
ing artist in a concert with the world- 
famous Tito Schipa. 

Miss Barthel attended Wayne Lni- 
versity, Detroit, where she was elected 
the most outstanding Music Major in 
her senior year. She studied with the 
late Olga Samaroff Stokowski and 
won the Olga Samaroff Scholarship 
for two full years. She studied also 
at the Juilliard School of Music in 
New York and at the Philadelphia 
Conservatory, and she is now studying 
with Charles de Bodo, eminent musi- 
cian of the United States and Hung- 
ary. After her appearance in Carneg- 
ie Hall, September, 1046, in which 
she won a most enthusiastic response, 
she came to Lebanon Valley College 
as Professor of Piano. Since that time 
she has appeared in many recitals and 
orchestral appearances on the east 
and in the mid-west. The critics are 
agreed that here indeed is an Ameri- 
can-born, American-trained artist who 
ranks as one of the outstanding 
women pianists of today, and her 
admirers at Lebanon Valley College, 

Pi Gamma Mu Group 
Hears Prof. Ehrhart 

An address by Prof. Carl Y. Ehr- 
hart, Head of the Philosophy Depart- 
ment of Lebanon Valley College, on 
the timely subject "Religion in the 
World Today — Is Its Influence Wan- 
ng?" was the feature of the March 
meeting of the college chapter of Pi 
Gamma Mu, the National Social Sci- 
ence Honor Society, held at the home 
of President Dave Wallace, March 16. 

During the brief business meeting 
plans were announced for the annual 
banquet to be held May 1st at the 
Green Terrace. 

In his searching analysis of modern 
religion, Prof. Ehrhart discussed the 
factors which tended to diminish the 
vitality of religion and concluded his 
address with several favorable as- 
pects of the problem. Prof. Ehrhart 
saw the waning influence of religion 
expressed in the increase of secular- 
ism and materialism in our modern 
attitudes. He further criticized or- 
ganized religion for its failure to 
keep pace with the times intellect- 
ually, socially, ethically, and spiritual- 
ly. On the bright side Prof. Ehrhart 
regarded as healthy symptoms the 
steady increases in church member- 
ship, in Sunday School and mission- 
ary activities, in the activities of lay- 
men, in the social and economic activ- 
ities of various church groups, and 
in the unity expressed by the World 
Council of Churches. 

At the conclusion of his address, 
Prof. Ehrhart discussed numerous 
questions directed at him by an at- 
tentive audience. Refreshments were 
served by Mrs. P. W. Wallace, Prof. 
Florence Houtz, and Vivian Werner. 

and all local music lovers, support 
this view wholeheartedly. 

The young Lebanon Valley College 
pianist was the soloist of the Lehigh 
Valley Symphony Orchestra last fall 
in the presentation of the Grieg Con- 
certo and appeared in concerts in 
Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, March 23, 1950 




By Bill Fisher 


That's the unwanted title of Floyd- Becker — easily the best basketball 
player in Central Pennsylvania and among the top ten in the entire state. Who 
says so? We do — and will prove it! 

The Associated Press picked an all-State team last week. They selected 
10 on the first team, io on the second team, and 32 for honorable mention, 
52 plavers in all, and Becker wasn't even listed. 

That's why we're doing this column. This isn't Lebanon Valley bologna, 
but a legitimate gripe against the recent AP poll. 

These polls are getting to be downright dumbfounding. We are hardly 
qualified to select all the best basketball players in Pennsylvania, but we can 
compare the performances of the All- State players we have witnessed in 
action. And it is on that basis we shall show that Becker belongs on the 
All-State team. 

:Jt $ ♦ ♦ 

First off though, we would like to know just how that team was picked. 
The AP says it is selected "in a statewide poll of coaches, sports writers 
and radio reporters." 

LV's coach never received a ballot. In the past the publicity department 
received a ballot, but not this time. 

The ballots we used to get were for the first team selections only. We 
assume that is how they voted this year. If so, who picks the remaining 
players? Surely 52 guys weren't selected on various first team ballots and 
then placed according to the number of first team votes they received. Where 
would Holmes Ulsh of Juniata and Jack Leighton of Scranton get first team 
votes ? 

As an added twist, figure this one if you can. Becker made an honorable 
mention for the past two years. He had his greatest season this year, and 
they missed him. How come? 

Probably the best way to second-guess this AP team is to compare the 
performances of our choice, Becker, against opposing players who made the 

Six players who played against us this season made the squad : Bucky 
Harris, Gettysburg, first team ; Ed Anlian, Albright, second team. Honorable 
mention went to Jack Leighton, Scranton ; Holmes Ulsh, Juniata ; Bill Werpe- 
hoski, Moravian ; and Chips Margavage of P.M.C. Of Margavage we know 
little and saw less; therefore do not feel qualified to judge his ability. 

sjc s£ $ ajs $ 

We had a short session with Coach Mease soon after the AP announced 
their team, and, like the rest of us, Ralph was displeased that Becker didn't 
make All-State. He felt that Floyd had the all-around ability to qualify. 

"What do you look for in a basketball player?" we asked Ralph. 

He responded with the following four points, not necessarily in this order 
cf importance. 

(1) Can he shoot? (2) Can he rebound? (3) Can he guard? (4) Can 
he handle a ball ? 

So, I decided to compare Becker on these four points against five of our 
opponents who made the All-State listings. 

(1) Shooting. All six can shoot. Anlian averaged 19.4, Werpehoski about 
19.3, Becker 17.6, Ulsh 17.5, Leighton about 16, and Harris 13.4. 

But how many of them were consistent? Anlian wasn't through 
the first half of the season when he was hitting about 11 a game. Werpehoski 
wasn't. In fact, he didn't start against us at Moravian "because he hasn't been 
doing so good lately." 

Ulsh wasn't. Up to the final game of the season he didn't average 13 a 
game. Leighton wasn't. He sat out most of the LV game in Lebanon and 
ended the evening with 7 points. Harris wasn't. He was under 10 points a 
game several times and ended up with a mediocre 13.4 average — not All-State 
caliber, especially not the first team. 

Ah, but Becker. Floyd averaged 16.5 or over from the very first game. 
Only once did he score under 10 points and that was against G-burg when 
he fouled out after a minute of the final period. He ended the season with a 
17.6 average. . . . 

Here's how Becker did in scoring against each player. Harris outscored 
him 18-8. He outscored Anlian 34-29 in 2 games.^ Ulsh topped him 45-27 in 
2 games. He tied Werpehoski 39-39 in 2 games. He outscored Leighton 40-27 
in 2 games. 

(2) Rebound. Harris did okay in this department. The remaining five, 
Becker included, were of little good under the board. 

(3) Defense. Harris, not bad. Anlian poor. Ditto Leighton, Werpehoski, 
and Ulsh. 

But Becker? He is also a good defensive player. He usually drew the 
number two man and more often than not did a good job on him. Beck held 
Harris, who had 2 inches on him, to 8 points until he switched men late in 
the third period of the G-burg game. 

(4) Ball-handler. Harris, nothing exceptional. Anlian poor. Again ditto 
Leighton, Werpehoski, and Ulsh. 

But Becker ? Without a peer — anywhere in the state ! He can pass and 
fake and dribble and operate a freeze. He can do everything with a ball but 
make it sing a song. When it comes to ball-hadling the other five players 
aren't even in Becker's class. Strictly no contest. 

Dutchgirls Close Season; 
Hutchinson Tallies 212 

Another season of girls' basketball 
is now past history for the Flying 
Dutchgirls. Having the decided dis- 
advantage of having only four home 
games, the Dutchgirls, nevertheless 
accounted for an average season with 
five wins and six losses to their cred- 
it. Under the supervision of coach 
"Jackie" Smith, the Blue and White 
lassies turned in the best record 
that has been compiled for several 

The first contest took place at Mor- 
avian College for Women on January 
14. The season ended on Thursday, 
March 16, when the Albright team 
handed the local gals their sixth de- 
feat. A summary of the season in- 
cludes the following scores :

Coach Smith began the season with 
only four girls who had seen action 
in the varsity games last year. With 
the addition of a few sophomores and 
one lone freshman she built up a 
strong squad which has good possi- 
bilities for next year. 

Captain Betts Slifer is the only 
senior on the squad. Betts is a vet- 
eran of four years of varsity basket- 
ball and hockey at the Valley. She 
hails from Spring City, Pa. In addi- 
tion to playing basketball this year, 
Betts has acted as referee for the 
intramural league. 

Helen MacFarland, whom everyone 
knows as "Mac," is one of the three 
forwards remaining from last year. 
Our versatile blonde of Glenside, Pa., 
is well known for her performance 
on the hockey field and as a member 
of the waiter staff. Now she adds to 
her activities by completing another 
season as a high-flyin' Dutchgirl. 

Betty E'delman — she of the red coat 
— is another veteran forward who has 
seen considerable action on the basket- 
ball floor since her arrival from Robe- 
sonia where she is remembered for 
her long shots. Speaking of long shots, 
Betty can be seen almost any after- 
noon in the gym where she proves to 
any doubters that she has earned her 
nickname of "Hot Shot." 

Jeanne "Hutch" Hutchinson of Jac- 
obstown, New Jersey, saw limited 
action last year but emerged as high 
scorer in the final count of the 1950 
seaon. In fact, she was high scorer 
in every game except one. Only a 
sophomore, "Hutch" has two more

years to assist the Dutchgirls toward 
a victorious season. 

"Libby" Roper hails from Delaware 
and is another of those active sopho- 
mores. In addition to her capable exe- 
cution of the position of right guard, 
"Libby" is noted for her imitation of 
an ape. She also lends her talents to 
the hockey team where she fills the 
right halfback slot. 

Dotty Witmer, our blonde from 
Progress, climbed from her position 
on the J.V.'s of last year to find her 
place among the high scorers on this 
year's squad. Her unique shooting 
talent has pulled the Dutchgirls 
through many a tight spot.

the crowds in the Susquehanna Town-

years ago, rounds out the list of the 
varsity forwards. Her performances

Marge is the only married member 
of the squad; she plays her hardest

good feeling among the teammates.

ICG Held at Harrisburg 
Kline, Fehr, Moller Head 
Important Committees 

On Thursday, April 13, 1950, the Political Science Club convoyed twenty- 
seven of the school's finest (in the political field) to the Intercollegiate Con- 
ference on Government which was meeting in Harrisburg. 

As part of a convention numbering 583 students from over sixty of the 
colleges of Pennsylvania, LVC's delegation set out filled with that same 
determination and vitality for which it has become so widely known through- 
out these parts in the past four years. With Ray Kline at the helm as 
delegation chairman, the group invaded the state capitol at 2:12 P.M. Thurs- 
day afternoon and kept their hands deep in convention activities until the last 
elements finally withdrew late Sunday afternoon. 

To say that the Lebanon Valley College delegation did its share is an 
understatement. The group excelled collectively and individually. As a unit, 
its members entered work for the drafting of a new State Constitution, which 
was the purposse of the 1950 ICG. Most of these articles found their way to 
thc plenary sessions in majority reports, and the remainder were contained in 
various minority reports. Spearheading the drive for LVC's legislation were 
John Nilan, Evelyn Toser, Ray Zimmerman, Paul Kaufman and Jim Murray, 
all of whom played heads up on the political ballfield to score their points. 

But the group made its influence felt elsewhere, too. In the rugged cam- 
paign for Speaker of the Convention, the delegates moved in bloc form to 
support Dick Evans, regional favorite son from Dickinson College. It almost 
worked, too, as Evans led in the preferential balloting for three rounds before 
succumbing to Freund, his leading opponent on the final ballot. Members 
of the local delegation were instrumental in the convention "politicking that 
saw Evans lose by a scant five votes on the fourth ballot. 

But to stress the collective aptitude of the delegates is not enough. In 
the field of individual accomplishment, LVC's representatives also proved 
themselves Al Fehr chairmaned the State Civil Service Committee to con- 
clude four years of distinguished work. Robert Moller was selected Registrar 
for the entire convention, and with the untiring and efficient assistance of his 
aides, Dave Wallace and Jay Flocken, brought to Lebanon Valley College

Margaret Barthel Baxtresser, tal- 
ented young professor of piano at 
Lebanon Valley, has been awarded 
the Walter W. Naumberg Foundation 
Award for piano. 

She was one of the 140 applicants 
entered in the competition, including 
piano, voice, violin, and other musical 
instruments. Two violinists and one 
vocalist also received awards. 

The brilliant musicianship, facile 
fingers, and technical training of the 
gifted pianist have entitled her, in 
addition to the award, to a debut 
recital in New York's Town Hall, 
with all expenses paid by the Naum- 
berg Foundation. 

The judges were headed by Isadore 
Phillips, internationally famous pian- 
ist and pedagogue, and Zino Frances- 
cotti, eminent violinist. Mr. Naumberg 
heard the finals, and when the judges 
announced the awards, he stated that 
this year the contestants were of the 
highest level of any year, and that in 
other years the losers this year would 
have been winners. 

Mrs. Baxtresser attended Wayne 
University, Detroit, where she was 
elected the most outstanding music 
major in her senior class. She stud- 
ied with the late Olga Samaroff Sto- 
kowski and won the Olga Samaroff 
Scholarship for two full years. She 
studied also at Julliard School of 
Music in New York and at the Phila- 
delphia Conservatory, and she is now 
studying with Charles de Bodo, emi- 
nent musician of the United States 
and Hungary. 

Mrs. Baxtresser revealed that her 
Town Hall debut recital will be held 
in New York in the late fall or early

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday. April 20, 1950 


Is It Smart to Be Smart? 

By George SPrublc, Professor of English 

A stock character frequently satirized in early drama was the pedant, a 
man who was ridiculous because, though ever so learned, he had no grasp of 
practical matters, no acquaintance, at least to judge by his conversation, with 
the business of every-day living. His conversaton was ornate Latin phrases, 
allusions to long-dead authors, and scraps of useless information drawn from 
the accumulated rubbish of the ages : 

Taffeta phrases , silken terms precise, 
Three-plied hyperboles, spruce affectation . . . 
Holof ernes, in Shakespeare's Love's Labors Lost, (from which these lines 
are quoted), was only one of a long line of such pedants. 

The pedant, however, has disappeared from contemporary literature, 
probably because he is less frequent in real life. The old-fashioned scholar, 
idealistic, absent-minded, has been replaced by a modern, streamlined man 
of affairs, who affects alertness, efficiency, and organizing ability. It is, 
the fashion of the hour, and most of us welcome the change. 

There is danger, however, that we may have gone to the other extreme. 
Modern college students seem to make an effort to avoid conversational topics 
that even remotely hint of the classroom or the textbook. Their bull-sessions 
repeat the well-practiced routine of women (or men), sports, new cars, and 
the latest movies. I do not criticize students for being concerned about these 
things. They have their importance. My complaint is that when one has 
named these topics, one has exhausted the list. There is so little variety. In 
vain will you listen, where students are gathered, for intelligent comment 
on existentialism, Shostakovich, the excavations under Saint Peter's, T. S. 
Eliot of the Kunkle-Duff feud. Thgre are exceptions, of course, but to the 
average student, if one judges by conversation, music means, "Baby, It's Cold 
Outside," art means Dick Tracy or Ella Cinders, and contemporary affairs 
means the Gibbs case. Add a few items about business, local or Wall Street, 
and the same description would apply to the conversation of their elders. 

The conversation of the pedant was ridiculous because the pedant, steeped 
in the lore of books, was almost totally oblivious of his own immediate 
environment; the conversation of the modern is flat because it draws almost 
not at all on the riches which only books can provide. 

Spring; Irish; Coal and 
Midwives; 5c Stamp; Rats 

By Jay Flocken 

Spring is just around the corner again. This is seasonal proof of the 
cyclic nature of all things in this world. Even in the world of politics and 
international relations there is a pattern that a careful observer can follow. 
Not that there is a definite Winter in partisan politics — even though biparti- 
sanship is icy — followed by a Spring when all party issues subside and Demo- 
crat and Republican support each other's pork barrels ; but there are days 
throughout the world when the humorous side of life's stresses seems to 
outshine the threatening, cataclysmic shadow lurking ever near. It may be 
that those who read here are not fundamentally concerned with world affairs 
and current crises, do not read a daily newspaper, or are not Pol. Sci. majors. 
It is for you people that these heartening tidbits have been collected, because 
you are missing the lighter side of American politics, England's parliamentary 
dilemma, the floundering U.N., and possible Point IV areas. 

On March 31, 1950, the House of Representatives passed the second 
E.R.P. appropriation. The point to be discussed is not how much that amount 
was, nor how wise it was. Alake believe that you are an Englishman, and 
consequently the debates over appropriation will take on new significance. 
Pretend that in the dispatches from the other side of the Atlantic you read 
Ireland is being mentioned in the debate. Being a descendant from men whose 
blood ran in the streets over the Irish issue, your blood now runs alternately 
hot and cold. Imagine, if you can, the chagrin you feel as you realize that 
not only has a representative proposed an amendment that would hold up the 
British share of E.R.P. funds ($687,100,000) as long as London permitted the 
partition of Ireland, but that the amendment was adopted amid an ovation 
from the galleries ! "Those bloomin' colonies . . . heathen ingrates." Anglo- 
American stocks fell 200 points Wednesday the 29th, and the elimination of 
the amendment on Friday the 31st by a vote of 226-60, assuring E.R.P. 

dollars to Britain and to H with the Irish, has not reassured the Britons 

that U. S. politics have reburied an old, old bone — the Irish vote. 

But just so you do not believe that we are Anglophiles, we have an 
English political counterpart that is even more ridiculous. These events also 
transpired on this Wednesday. Winston Churchill, greatest living autobiog- 
rapher and leader of His Majesty's Loyal Opposion, took the opportunity 
Wednesday night to propose adjournment during a debate on the subject,

Officers Elected 
By Psych Club 

The election of officers for the 
1950-51 term constituted the major 
business of the psychology club at its 
meeting on March 28. President Bob 
Eigenbrode was in charge of the 

Officers elected were as follows: 
President, Miriam Keller ; Vice Presi- 
dent, Ray Zimmerman ; Secretary- 
Treasurer, Peg Bower. 

Other business concerned the visit 
of Dr. Magda Arnold to our campus 
on May 3, and plans for that meeting 
were made. 

Plan On Attending

""Does a ton of mined coal have more impurities since nationalization or not? 
because the crafty old parliamentarian noticed that the Labor Party benches 
were rather empty. Liberal Party members supported the Tories and Winnie 
chieved the first "defeat" of the government since its very shaky beginning 
in February with a mere 6 vote majority— the Commons adjourned. Nor was 
Labor's day of defeat ended. Within 24 hours the House of Lords, » ver 
Government objections, voted to support a proposal that midwives could wear 
a national uniform. Thus Mr. Churchill, to quote Labor circles, "had . • j

in that body created by the refusal of Soviet Russia to attend any meetings

for a common face-saving solution is that business be transacted entirely W

Mr. Curtis received his Bachelor's 
degree from Kansas State Teachers 
College at Pittsburg, Kansas. While 
at college there he played violin, viola, 
and tympani in the college symphony, 
and was student conductor of all the 
musical organizations. He did his 
graduate work at Eastman School of 
Music in Rochester, N.Y. 

Critics agree that Charles Curtis 
has become an artist of the 1st rank, 
endowed by nature with a beautiful 
tenor voice that is brilliant and thrill- 
ing. Blessed with a winning person- 
lity, his dignified and dynamic in- 
terpretations place him in a category 
of his own. 

Norman Farrow 

The muse of History, rather than 
that of Music, first beckoned to Nor- 
man Farrow, and led him to an MA. 
in that subject at the U. of Western 
Ontario. After graduation, history 
gave up its losing battle with music ; 
he came to New York and won a 
three year fellowship at the Julliard 
Graduate School. Mr. Farrow quick- 
ly gained a reputation in oratorio 
singing performances. 

Then the war intervened. Follow- 
ing demobilization in April, 1946, Mr. 
Farrow made his re-entry into the 
New York musical scene as soloist 
at historic Grace Church and as the 
solo bass singer of the Bach Aria 

In this capacity Norman Farrow 
has sung concerts in New York, 
Philadelphia, Washington, and Balti- 

Alice Hendricks 

Miss Alice Hendricks comes here 
with an interesting background of per- 
formances. She has appeared as solo- 
ist with Toscaninni and Stokowski 
and also appeared in films with these 
two conductors. She was soloist at 
the Roxy Theatre, New York City 
for one year, and then appeared in 
the New York Company of "High 
Button Shoes." She has also sung 
many leading roles with the Village 
Opera Company and has appeared 
as soloist in mny oratorios. At pres- 
ent, she is soloist at the West End 
Presbyterian Church in New York. 
She has also given numerous perform- 
ances on radio and television.

plaudits of all. Ray Kline, while attending the Executive Committee meeting 
with Prof. Maud P. Laughlin, advisor, was unanimously elected ICG 
Sergeant-at-Arms. Ray was also awarded the privilege of delivering the 
nominating speech for Dick Evans, and concluded his four years of activity 
by conducting a discussion among ICG "also-rans" over WHP in Harrisburg. 

But the contributions of the delegation as individuals are really incal- 
culable. Despite the fact that many were first-year delegates, they proved 
themselves under fire. Ronnie Wolf and John Charles Smith "stuck to their 
guns" in a marathon committee session that had all the appearance of lasting 
till dawn. Gerry Miller and Clyde Baver, both first year men, endured 
gruelling committee work and managed to emerge with their perpetual smiles 
intact. Herb Rowe, with his long cigar, handled his committee work in his 
silent, efficient manner. Gale Plantz was a "lone wolf" too, but both he and 
Rowe did their share toward the delegation's "esprit de corps." Evelyn Toser 
and alternate Jim Quick had the dubious privilege of attending a mishandled 
committee ; and the young lady, accustomed to efficiency from the chair, 
almost took over herself. Earl Redding and Charlie Reed displayed parlia- 
mentary knowledge in committee action and Charlie contributed an applause- 
provoking comment before the general session. Euston and Bomgardner, paired 
together in committee, performed valuable services in various caucuses. Bob 
Glock's versatility on the keyboard earned him an invitation to play in the 
floor show at the convention dance. Dottie Dando provided the delegation 
with another alternate, as did Jean Bozarth. Both young ladies did a com- 
mendable job in their respective committees. Bobby Eigenbrode performed 
a valuable service for the delegation on the Rules Committee and certainly 
did a fine job. Jim Davis looked good on the Political field, and Phil Hayes 
spent his time chasing Nilan in an effort to get through a good minority 

LVC's delegation did a bang-up job. Whether they were in caucus in 
"Tiny's" tiny 916 or scattered abroad among their various committees, the 
services they performed may be viewed proudly by the department and the 
school they represent.

Exchange Notes 

At sweet sixteen I first began 
To ask the Lord for a man 
At seventeen I recall 
I wanted someone strong and tall 
The Christmas that I reached eighteen 
I fancied someone blond and lean 
And then at nineteen I was sure 
I'd fall for someone more mature 
At twenty I thought that I would find 
Romance with someone with a mind 
I retrogressed at twenty-one 
And found college boys most fun 
My viewpoint changed at twenty-two 
When one man only was my cue 
I broke my heart at twenty-three 
And asked for someone kind to me 
Then begged at blase twenty-four 
For anyone who wouldn't bore 
Now Lord that I am twenty-five 
Just send me someone who's alive.

LVC Delegates Go 
To Public Affairs 
Conference In Ohio 

On March 30, 31, and April 1, 1950, 
Mrs. Laughlin, Mr. and Mrs. Wolf- 
gang, Robert Moller, and Raymond 
Kline attended the Fourth Annual 
Conference on Public Affairs held by 
the Ohio State University Department 
of Speech at the Deshler-Wallick Ho- 
tel, Columbus, Ohio. The subject of 
the Conference was "Major" Prob- 
lems of the Unted States Foreign 
Policy in the 1950's." 

Lebanon Valley College was among 
the forty-one colleges to send dele- 
gates to the conference. 

Raymond Kline and Robert Moller 
served on the Political Committees on 
which were consultants from Wash- 
ington, D.C. Consultants from the 
Capitol were present on all the main 
panels. Raymond Kline also served 
as unofficial Parliamentarian and pre- 
sented two resolutions in the plenary 
session as the Political Committees 
Majority Floor Leader. 

Britannica Offers 
Jobs to Students 

Students of Lebanon Valley College 
have been offered an unusual oppor- 
tunity to earn up to $75-$i25 a week 
in summer vacation work through a 
special arrangement with Encyclo- 
pedia Britannica, Inc., it was an- 
nounced by Frank Black, Manager of 
the Britannica Office in Philadelphia, 

The 182-year old Britannica organ- 
ization, producers of the reference 
work that is universally recognized as 
"the standard of the world," is in the 
process of expanding its distributing 
facilities to meet the demands for 
home reference works occasioned by 
the growing crisis in the public 

Both men and women undergradu- 
ate students of selected colleges and 
universities are being offered the op- 
portunity to show the Britannica pro- 
grams to interested parents during the 
summer months. 

"Earnings, for these undergraduates 
who can qualify, will generally reflect 

Professor Raymond 

Professor Raymond, a highly ener- 
getic young man, is, like our own 
Professor Rutledge, an intense devo- 
tee of the Waring School of Choral 
Art. He is on the staff of the Fred 
Waring organization during Music 
Workshop Summer Sessions at Shaw- 
nee of the Delaware. A graduate of 
Ford City high school, he earned his 
B.S. at West Chester State Teachers 
and his Masters at Columbia U. He 
took his graduate work at Julliard. 

Prof. Raymond taught music at 
schools in Ardmore and Coatesville, 
Pa. He is director of the Musical 
Arts Chorus in Easton, Pa. This year 
he will appear as guest conductor of 
m;;ny music festivals and will also 
conduct vocal clinics throughout Pa. 

A great technician, Mr. Raymond 
stresses diction, consonants and vow- 
els, and masters a technique which is 
often overlooked in many choral 

the chosen representative's own ener- 
gy, and the number of prospects to 
whom the program is shown," Mr. 
Black said. 

"However, undergraduates who par- 
ticipated in the summer-work pro- 
gram in past years, when the need for 
Britannica products was not even so 
urgent as it is today, have consistently 
earned $75 a week, and payments for 
$125 a week to temporary represen- 
tatives are not uncommon." 

Lafayette Chorus 
Appears in Engle 

Engle Hall will be the scene of an- 
other outstanding musical perform- 
ance Wednesday night, April 26 at 
8:30 P.M., at which time Prof. John 
D. Raymond will conduct the famous 
Lafayette College Chorus. 

The chorus which consisted of only 
twelve men in 1946, is now composed 
of 70 male voices. Prof. Raymond 
joined the staff of the college in 1946 
and under his brilliant supervision the 
chorus rose to its present strength. 

The chorus is very active in col- 
legiate and extra-curricular activities. 
They sing for Lafayette College Serv- 
ices each Sunday, present an Annual 
Christmas Vespers, participate in the 
College's Annual Spring Music Festi- 
val, and travel extensively through the 
Middle Atlantic States. Some of their 
programs have also been broadcast 
over a nation-wide NBC hook-up. 
They have also appeared at the Annual 
Meeting given by the Penna. Dental 
Assn. in Atlantic City, and gave three 
separate programs for the 37th Annual 
Meeting of the Chamber of Com- 
merce of the U.S. in Washington, 

There will be no general admission 
charge for this concert ; however, a 
silver offering will be taken.

Dr. Clara Chassel Cooper is attend- 
ng the 20th Annual Meeting of the 
Eastern Psychological Association 
which is being held at Clark Univer- 
sity, Worcester, Mass., on April 20,

scheduled for this three day con- 
ference is Anne Freud, the daughter 
of Sigmund Freud who is known 
throughout the world as founder of 
the theory of psychoanalysis.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, April 20, 1955 

Juniata and Scranton Bow 
To Dutchmen 10*3; 9*8 

By Jim Pacy 

Lebanon Valley's baseball aggre- 
gation opened its 1950 season in fine 
style on Saturday afternoon when they 
travelled to Huntingdon and scalped 
the Juniata College Indians by a 10-3 
score before approximately 300 chilled 
spectators who braved the near-freez- 
ing weather to witness the contest. 
On Monday the Flying Dutchmen 
trekked to Scranton where they came 
from behind in the ninth inning and 
nipped the Royal diamonders by a 9-8 

Fred Fore, Coach Ralph Mease's 
veteran moundsman, started on the 
hill against Juniata and went seven 
innings to record his first win of the 
season. Al Murawski came on in the 
eighth and finished up allowing Juni- 
ata nothing more than a walk. 

The home club scored in the first 
inning when catcher George Kensing- 
er crossed the plate after he was 
walked, went to second on a passed 
ball, to third on an error by Tom 
Sawyer, and came home on Harry 
Frye's single. Frye however, was 
thrown out by catcher "Hank" Di- 
Johnson when he attempted to steal 
second and thus the inning ended 

Lebanon Valley retaliated in the 
second frame and pushed four runs 
across. However, "Chuck" Zimmer- 
man grounded out and Fred Sample 
fanned before the rally started. Bill 
Schadler then nicked Juniata hurler 
Ken Wenger for a single and the 
Dutchmen were off. Wenger walked 
Floyd Becker, Fore, and "Shorty" 
Fields to force Schadler in. With the 
bases loaded Neal Woll made first 
safely when Juniata's first baseman 
Ray Tesi committed an error ; mean- 
while allowing Becker to score. Saw- 
yer was up next and he repeated his 
first inning feat by hitting safely and 
thus knocking Fore and Fields in. 
Dijohnson's fly was hauled in by left 
fielder Frye to end the inning with 
the score 4-1, Lebanon Valley. 
Juniata Registers Twice 

Juniata scored again in the fifth 
after Fore had the Blue and Gold 
stymied for three innings. Tesi greet- 
ed Fore with a single and Fred Smith 
was safe at first on a fielder's choice 
that put Tesi out at second. Wenger 
Hied out and then Julius Long touched 
for for another hit to send Smith 
home. Kensinger ended the session 
by popping to Zimmerman. The Ind- 
ians pulled within one run of the 
Valley in the seventh when they ran 
up their last run of the tussel. Don 
Howett led off with a hit and follow- 
ing him, Tesi was safe at first while 
Howett was safe at second when 
Sawyer failed to touch the bag. Smith 
struck out and Howett scored after 
Wenger was called out at first and 
Tesi was being run down by Zimmer- 
man and Sawyer in a "pickle." 
Blue and White Scores Six Runs 
in Last Two Frames 

The Dutchmen increased their win 
margin in the eighth inning by adding 
two more runs. Dale Shellenberger 
fouled out to Kensinger but Mark 
Heberling reached first safely after 
he struck out while catcher Kensing- 
er dropped the ball on the third strike. 
Heberling stole second and then 
raced home on Becker's bingle. Beck- 

er went down to second on John Sta- 
mato's pinch-hit for Fore, scoring on 
second sacker H'owett's error. A 
double-play ended the inning when 
Long tagged out Stamato and threw 
out Woll at first, with the Measers 
now leading by 6-3. 

Sawyer connected for his third hit 
of the day to start the final inning. 
Dijohnscn followed suit and sent Saw- 
j-er to third. Di Johnson stole second 
and both he and Sawyer scooted home 
on Zimmerman's base hit. Shellen- 
berger was safe on a fielder's choice, 
and Zimmerman went to third on 
Howett's second miscue ; Shellenberg- 
er racing to second. The first out was 
recorded when Heberling didn't reach 
first after the catcher dropped his 
third strike again. Becker tagged 
first safely on shortstop Smith's error 
and meanwhile Zimmerman and Shel- 
lenberger ran home. Murawski whif- 
fed and Richie Furda was hit by a 
Wenger pitch to get on. Woll was 
walked and Marty Gluntz came in to 
bat for Sawyer who was injured when 
the ball bounced off the bat and lac- 
erated his lip. At this point Wenger 
left the mound with bases loaded and 
Dave LeFever came in, striking out 
Gluntz to end the inning.

Late Rally Downs Coal Miners 

Going into the ninth inning on the 
short end of an 8-5 score the Flying 
Dutchmen tossers drummed up a five 
hit attack that netted four runs and 
thus squeezed past Scranton Univer- 
sity 9-8 with their devastating rally. 
Scranton had a 3^-run lead and saw 
this begin to diminish when Bill 
Schadler opened the ninth with a 
rousing double, his second of the 
afternoon. Floyd Becker added to the 
rally and tagged a single which drove 
in Schadler. After Murawski ground- 
ed out and Richie Furda bit the dust, 
Neal Woll was walked and Tom 
Sawyer continued his heavy slugging 
by rapping out a singleton to chase 
home Becker. Dijohnson kept up 
the onslaught and hit safely sending 
Woll across. "Chuck" Zimmerman 
totally wiped out the Upstaters' lead 
as he drove in the winning run by 
singling in Sawyer. 

Bill Frazier received the starting 
mound assignment and he toiled six 
innings until he gave way to Al 
Murawski with the Valley on the 
losing end 6-3. Murawski had the 
first two hitters ground out but he 
allowed two runs when he walked 
Datti, gave up a triple to Sheridan 
and a hit to Lukowak. Finally, La- 
velle ended the inning by flying out to 
Becker. In the eighth inning Muraw- 
ski set them down in order and after 
the Blue and White rally in the ninth, 
Al saved the day by striking out two 
of the three batters facing him while 
the other flied out to Furda. 

Sample scored the first LVC run 
in the second frame when he raced 
home on Schadler's base hit. The 
Valley added two more in the third 
stanza when Frazier smashed out a 
triple and scored along with Neal 
Woll on Tom Sawyer's hit. "Shorty' 
Fields replaced Sample in the sev- 
enth and he scored on Schadler's 
double. Sawyer added another run 
in the eighth on an infield error.

Brooklyn-LVC Tied 
For Fifth In US 

Although baseball is the sport oi 
interest now, we thought that this last 
release from the National Collegiate 
Athletic Bureau would be of interest 
to our students. Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege's basketball squad ranked among 
the top small college teams in the ra- 
tion in scoring this past season. 

Coach Ralph Mease's Flying Dutch- 
men ended the season wtih an average 
of 76.5 points per game to tie for fifth 
highest in the country with Brooklyn 
College. Morris Harvey of West Vir- 
ginia was first with a 79.9 average, 
followed by Westminster of Penn- 
sylvania with 78.6, Montana 774 
Davis and Elkins of West Virginia 
76.9, then Lebanon Valley and Brook, 
lyn. Moravian was tenth with a 72.0 
average and Albright was thirty-ninth 
with 66.3 points per game. 

Eddie Frazier was seventh highest 
in single game foul shooting with IS 
foul conversions out of 17 tries against 
Scranton University. Out of no play- 
ers who had an average of 14-5 P omti 
per game or over, Floyd Becker was 
53rd with an average of 17.6. Fresh- 
man Al Murawski, who only pl^ 
during the second semester, was 61st 
with 17.0.

May Day Theme Is 
Old Time Melodrama 

"Come to the Fair," the general 
theme of the May Day pageant on 
the Lebanon Valley College campus, 
Saturday afternoon, May 6th (rain 
date, May 13), 2:00 P.M., will fea- 
ture monkeys, clowns, fortune tellers, 
horses, side shows, tumbling acts, and 
many other spectacular circus attrac- 
tions, according to an announcement 
by Mrs. Ernestine J. Smith, Director 
of Physical Education for Women, 
who is in charge of the production. 
Special music is furnished by the 
College Band under the direction of 
Professor Edward P. Rutledge, Di- 
rector of Musical Organizations at the 
Conservatory of Music. 

The following is a synopsis of the 
May Day theme as written by Dr. 
George G. Struble, Professor of Eng- 


Ever since childhood Little Nell 
had heard stories about the circus. 
Although she was a farmer's daughter, 
her father, Roscqe Bean, had followed 
the circus in his youth and had many 
stories to tell about the exciting things 
that happen in the saw-dust ring. 
Was it any wonder then that Little 
Nell, when she saw the gaudy posters 
announcing the appearance of the 
circus at the state fair, should want 
to_ leave home to join the troupe? In 
spite of the remonstrances of her 
father, of her brother Hi (for Hiram),

Exchange Notes . . . 

Political theory, painlessly: 
At the University of Virginia, an 
easy way of recognizing different pol- 
itical systems is in use by political 
science profs. It goes thus : 

Idealism : If you have two cows, 
milk them both. Use all the milk you 
need and have enough left for every- 

Socialism: If you have two cows, 
give them both to the government, 
then the government will give you 
back some milk. 

Imperialism : If you have two cows ; 
steal somebody's bull. 

Communism : If you have two cows, 
you're a capitalist. 

Capitalism : If you have two cows, 
sell one and buy a bull. 

New Dealism : If you have two 
cows, the government shoots one ; you 
milk the other and throw part of the 
milk down the sink. 

Nazism : If you have two cows the 
government snoots you and takes 
them. Lehigh Brotvn & White

and of Harold McGuire, her country 
lover, she goes to Centreopolis and 
soon has a job as a a bare-back rider. 
She has told Harold that she must 
choose between marriage and a car- 
eer ; and in her imagination she sees 
herself performing to the plaudits of 
adoring multitudes. 

Old Roscoe, who knows only too 
well the temptations that beset a girl 
under the big top, also goes to Centre- 
opolis, and without his daughter's 
knowledge gets a job with the circus 
as a clown. He believes that hidden 
under his clown's disguise he can 
keep an eye on Little Nell and shield 
her from harm. He soon learns that 
his apprehensions, were not without 
reason, for Mortimer Witherspoon, 
handsome ringmaster of the circus, 
under the pretense of giving lessons 
in equitation, has been lavishing his 
attentions on the unsuspecting girl. 

In the meantime Hi, not knowing 
of his father's activities has also gone, 
umbrella and all, to Centropolis to 
offer his protection to Little Nell. 
However Hi knows little of the ways 
of the big city, and soon finds himself 
victim of smooth confidence-men and 
butt of ciucus wags. 

But when Little Nell finds herself 
in a most compromising situation, as 
a result of the machinations of Morti- 
mer Witherspoon, it is neither the 
courageous but pathetic Rosco Bean, 
nor the ludicrous Hi who saves her, 
just in the nick of time, but Harold 
McGuire, her faithful lover.

Lafayette Claws 
Dutchmen by 9-2 

By Jim Pacy 

Lebanon Valley's baseball team put 
its unblemished record on the line at 
Easton last Saturday afternoon and 
when the smoke had cleared Lafayette 
College's diamond squad ended any 
hopes for an undefeated season by 
trimming the Flying Dutchmen 9-2 
before approximately 1,000 spectators. 

Lafayette, coached by one-time Leb- 
anon Valley grear, Charlie Gelbert, 
jumped on LV hurler Al Murawski, 
who beat Scranton for his first win 
last week, for two hits and four runs 
in the first inning and that was the 
ball game right there. Lafayette added 
another run in the fourth frame when 
second-baseman Angle connected with 
(me of Murawski's tosses and sent it 
sailing for a home run. Bill Frazier 
came on in the sixth to relieve Al and 
he issued a walk and a single to yield 
two runs, one of which was charged 
to Murawski, and then gave up two 
more in the eighth inning when the 
Maroon bunched three hits with the 
help of an error and registered a pair 
of scores. 

George Davidson was the mounds- 
man for the home aggregation and 
he went the route for the Marquis, 
keeping LVC's hits pretty well scat- 
tered. Lebanon Valley, however, solv- 
ed him in the seventh when "Hank" 
Dijohnson led off with a single. After 
Zimerman flied to center, Schadler 
singled, chasing in Dijohnson with the 
Valley's first score. However, Schad- 
ler's hit flew past the infield and by 
the time it was relayed in, the Val- 
ley's first sacker tagged home behind 
Dijohnson. With only one out, Dav- 
idson returned to his controlled hurl- 
ing and offered but one hit the rest 
of the game when Frazier nicked him 
for a bingle in the eighth. 

All told the Maroon had eleven hits 
with Angle's homer, Killinger's triple 
and Bird's three for five setting the 
pace. Dijohnson led the Measemen 
with two for four. 

Two-base hits: Murawski, Dojan; 
Three-base hits: Killinger; Home run: 
Angle. Double plays: Lafayette 2; Bases 
on balls: Davidson 2, Murawski 4, Fraz- 
ier 2. Strike-outs: Davidson 7, Murawski 
3. Winning pitcher: Davidson; Losing 
pitcher. Murawski. Umpire: Imboden.

Miss li'elene Mosier, a regular em- 
ployee of the YW'CA, was here on 
our campus Monday and Tuesday, 
April 24 and 25, to work with and 
assist our Y organizations in setting 
up their retreat planned for this com- 
ing week-end and also to advise on 
the new plans they have in progress. 

From an assembly of the Middle 
Atlantic region that includes . five 
states and 95 colleges, a Regional 
Council is selected. Miss Mosier is 
a representative sent by this Regional 
Council to college campuses to help 
and aid the YWs in planning their 
programs. She assists in planning 
conferences, training programs, lead- 
ership training institutes, and num- 
erous other activities that are held on 
campus through the sponsorship of 
the Ys. 

Miss Mosier pointed out that the 
Ys on college campuses everywhere 
have been pioneer groups in helping 
set up such things as orientation 
week, girls' dormitories, and various 
other projects that we all now pro- 
claim an integral and necessary part 
of our own college. 

It is through the Ys here at L.V. 
that the college receives Life magazine 
and the Upper Room in the dormi- 
tories. And a week before the stu- 
dents ever arrive on campus the Y 
members are here busily showing the 
freshmen around.

Philo-Clio Play 
Huge Success 

In the last issue of La Vic there 
was to appear a picture of the play 
Hay Fever as presented jointly by 
Philo and Clio on April 21, 1950. For 
those not in the "know," the camera 
took the wrong picture. By way of 
an apology the above is a picture of 
a scene from the play. 

From all reports in and around 
campus the performance was a huge 
success and was met with approval 
by all who attended it. After the 
play a party was held in Philo Hall 
in honor of the cast. The cast also 
presented to director, Professor Mc- 
Klveen, a gift as an expression of 
their appreciation for his work on the 

The cast and Philo-Clio wish to 
express their thanks to Lyle (Red) 
Schwalm for his able handling of 
the lighting problem. 

Students to Present 
Papers at E.C.S.C. 

On Friday, April 28th, twelve chem- 
istry students accompanied by Dr. 
Neidig will travel to New York City 
to attend the Annual Eastern College 
Science Conference which is being 
held this year at Barnard College. 
Mr. Robert Miller, a junior student 
from Harrisburg, and Mr. Dale Sny- 
der ,a senior student from Lebanon, 
will present papers on the various 
phases of the research project which 
is being conducted by Dr. Neidig. A 
very interesting program has been 
outlined for the conference which in- 
cludes field trips to points of interest 
on the Columbia campus and New 
York City. Such well known speak- 
ers as Dr. Coudan, U. S. Bureau of 
Standards, Dr. Weiner, of M.I.T., and 
Dr. Louis Feiser of Harvard are part 
of the week-end activities. 

All the large universities and col- 
leges of the East are represented at 
this conference and it is a hope that 
the merits of our research projects 
will be equal to theirs and hence, 
justify an additional report on this

Fore Flips TwO'Hitter As 
Temple Is Whitewashed 6'0 

By Jim Pacy 

Just when Temple University is 
about done living down the humilia- 
tion of a 7-7 football "defeat" inflicted 
by a suposedly inferior Lebanon Val- 
ley College grid squad, some guy 
named Fred Fore comes along and 
adds to the Philadelphia school's mis- 
ery by pitching a neat two-hitter while 
the Flying Dutchmen batters cut loose 
on two Temple hurlers and thus the 
Owls were goose-egged 6-0 last Wed- 
nesday afternoon before a highly 
pleased home crowd that gazed on in 
appropriate baseball weather. 

Fore looked very good in going the 
distance for his second straight win 
of the season against no losses. Fred 
allowed no walks and struck out nine 
in setting down the visiting batters 
without a hit until the eighth inning. 
Fred's attempt at a no-hitter, which 
almost became a reality, was wiped 
our when Maguire, the Temple re- 
serve catcher, touched him for a 
single and then Vellner, the 2nd Owl 
hurler, knocked out a double for the 
visitors' only hits of the day. Fred, 
however, had his shutout saved thanks 
to some fast fielding and sensational 
relaying by Richie Furda and Tom 
Sawyer to "Hank" Dijohnson at 
home plate. 

Lebanon Valley scored its first run 
in the initial inning when Sawyer got 
on via a fielder's choice and after 
Dijohnson singled, he came home 
on Zimmerman's line drive. The 
Dutchmen added another run when 
Fore rapped out a base hit and then 
scooted home as Furda whacked out 
a triple. Coach Ralph Mease's charg- 
es pushed up the score another notch 
in the fifth inning during which time 
Sawyer continued his wonderful slug- 
ging and accounted for another hit. 
He ran home when Mark Heberling 
added ot the rout of Temple tosser 
Burg with a double. The Valley 
marked up its last two tallies in the 
eighth, much to the dismay of the 
Cherry and White's relief pitcher, 
Velner. Sawyer clouted the Owl 
twirler for a double and scored along 
with "Shorty" Fields, who had beer: 
walked, when Dijohnson duplicated 
Sawyer's feat by belting one of Vel- 
ner's offerings for a two-bagger to 
end the scoring. 

The Blue and White looked very 
impressive and presented the home 
crowd with an important win over a 
favored opponent due to some fine 
all around play at the plate, on the 
base paths, and in the outfield. Far- 
da, Becker and Fields made some 
snappy defensive plays in the outfield 
and this coupled with Fore's compe- 
tent chucking and the Dutchmen col- 
lection of 11 hits added up to a de- 
serving win for Lebanon Valley. 

Temple's catcher, Jimmy Cross- 
more, was banished from the game 
in the last half of the third inning 
when he protested that his second 
erratic heave into center field was 
caused due to the fact that LV's 
batter, Heberling, interfered in his 
attempt to cut down a LVC base- 
stealer. After several warnings by 
umpire Lut Emerich his protest be- 
came so outrageous that he was ord- 
ered from the contest. 

Temple coach, Pete Wilson, at- 
tempted to avert a shutout and kept 

injecting pinch-hitters, but they were 
to no avail as Fore had the Wilson- 
ites eating out of his hands. The 
tussel proved to be a double revenge 
on the 3-0 loss suffered by the Meas- 
ers at the hands of these same Temp- 
leites in Philadelphia last year.

LaSalle and Hounds 
Next for LVC Nine 

The charges of baseball mentor 
Ralph Mease, were scheduled to play 
Albright at Reading on Monday, but 
due to the fact that it rained, the game 
was postponed and was re-scheduleo 
for yesterday afternoon if the weath- I 
er permitted. On Saturday the Flying 
Dutchmen continue on the road when | 
they invade Philadelphia to meet the 
LaSalle College nine. Last season 
the Explorers came to Annville and 
went home with a decisive H-0 de- 
feat pinned on them by the Blue and 
White. Tuesday, May 2, the Mease- 
men journey to Bethlehem where they 
will battle the Moravian College dia- 
monders. Last year the Greyhound? 
split a pair of games with the Dutch- 
men. , 

Lebanon Valley will be represented 
at the Penn Relays on Friday a"° 
Saturday and will run its second dual 
meet of the season at Lancaster on 
May 3, when Roger Robinson's boP

May Day Theme Is 
Old Time Melodrama 

"Come to the Fair," the general 
theme of the May Day pageant on 
the Lebanon Valley College campus, 
Saturday afternoon, May 6th (rain 
date. May 13), 2:00 P.M., will fea- 
ture monkeys, clowns, fortune tellers, 
horses, side shows, tumbling acts, and 
many other spectacular circus attrac- 
tions, according to an announcement 
by Mrs. Ernestine J. Smith, Director 
of Physical Education for Women, 
who is in charge of the production. 
Special music is furnished by the 
College Band under the direction of 
Professor Edward P. Rutledge, Di- 
rector of Musical Organizations at the 
Conservatory of Music. 

The following is a synopsis of the 
May Day theme as written by Dr. 
George G. Struble, Professor of Eng- 


Ever since childhood Little Nell 
had heard stories about the circus. 
Although she was a farmer's daughter, 
her father, Roscqe Bean, had followed 
the circus in his youth and had many 
stories to tell about the exciting things 
that happen in the saw-dust ring. 
Was it any wonder then that Little 
Nell, when she saw the gaudy posters 
announcing the appearance of the 
circus at the state fair, should want 
to leave home to join the troupe? In 
spite of the remonstrances of her 
father, of her brother Hi (for Hiram), 
and of Harold McGuire, her country 
lover, she goes to Centreopolis and 
soon has a job as a a bare-back rider. 
She has told Harold that she must 
choose between marriage and a car- 
eer ; and in her imagination she sees 
herself performing to the plaudits of 
adoring multitudes. 

Brightbill, Kline, 
Wallace Have Leads 
In May Day Pageant 

The students apeparing in the pic- 
ture below are the leading characters 
in the May Dav pageant to be held 
May 6. They a're Phyllis Brightbill, 
Dave Wallace, and Ray Kline. Phyllis 
Brightbill has the feminine lead and 
plays the part of Little Nell, a farm- 
er's daughter who wants to be a bare- 
back rider in the circus. Miss Bright- 
bill is a Junior at Lebanon Valley 
College and an English major. Cur- 
rently she is teaching physical educa- 
tion at Lebanon Catholic High, Leba- 
non, Pennsylvania, her home town. 

Raymond Kline, a senior also from 
Lebanon, plays the awkward gambo- 
ling country hick, Hiram, Nell's broth- 
er, who follows Little Nell in order to 
protect her from the dangers of the 
circus life. 

Dave Wallace steps a bit out of 
character to act opposite Miss Bright- 
bill as the villain of the show. "Morti- 
mer Witherspoon, ringmaster of the 
circus and a mustache twirling bad- 
man in the old melodramatic tradition. 

Old Roscoe, who knows only too 
well the temptations that beset a girl 
under the big top, also goes to Centre- 
opolis, and without his daughter's 
knowledge gets a job with the circus 
as a clown. He believes that hidden 
under his clown's disguise he can 
keep an eye on Little Nell and shield 
her from harm. He soon learns that 
his apprehensions were not without 
reason, for Mortimer Witherspoon, 
handsome ringmaster of the circus, 
under the pretense of giving lessons 
in equitation, has been lavishing his 
attentions on the unsuspecting girl. 

In the meantime Hi, not knowing 
of his father's activities has also gone, 
umbrella and all, to Centropolis to 

Raymond Kline, Phyllis Brightbill, and Dave Wallace pictured in 
scene from pageant.

The subject to be snapped this week, is a guy who finds Greek and 
Math just as easy as that good old subject of friendliness. Norman Bucher, 
president of the YM and math major extraordinary, is the senior in the 

Being a Valleyite seems to run in the Bucher family, for not only did 
Norm's brother graduate from LV last year, but his mother and father were 
members of a Lebanon Valley class which boasts such a notable as our own 
President Lynch. 

Norm was among the nine voted to the Who's Who in the Senior Class 
of 1950 and for quite a number of good reasons. He is a member of Phi 
Alpha Epsilon honor society, and was on the Quittie staff last year on the 
business end of that project. German Club, Chorus, to say nothing of the 
L-Club are numbered with Norm's activities. Baseball, in which he partici- 
pated for several years as first baseman, was his main interest in the line 
of sports . He has also been working as assistant to Professor Erickson. 

Norm who has taken the pre-ministerial course has the Lancaster 
Seminary lined up for the next stop in his career. All of us who have known 
him well or perhaps only slightly can be assured that he will be a worthy 
addition to the field he has chosen for his life work. Good luck from the 
Valley, Norm.

Don Trostle 

The face on the music belongs to 
Donald "Alias" Trostle, the man with 
a thousand names. Don, an energetic 
young man, is a very talented lad. 

While in High School in Hanover, 
Pa., (his home town) he organized 
and led a dance band. He then en- 
rolled in Western Maryland College 
where he spent several years before 
coming to LVC. Here at LVC he 
has been active in the College Band. 

Last year during the football season 
he introduced the "Theme for Six 
Trombones" and the "Swing Cheer.' 
More recently he composed and con- 
ducted the march "Spirit of LV" 
which was part of the program of 
the Annual Forum Concert. Don is 
one of Prof. Rutledge's assistants. 
The Senior Jazz Concert will owe 
much of its success to his untiring

Murawski Fans 15 As LVC 
Nine Trounces LaSalle 8-2 

Sawyer, Zimmerman 
Garner Three Hits 

By Jim Pacy 

Lebanon Valley's baseballers jour- 
neyed to Philadelphia on Saturday 
afternoon and really made their trip 
worthwhile as they pounded three La- 
Salle College hurlers for eleven hits 
and coupled this with Al Murawski's 
neat manipulation of the missle to 
drench the Quaker City boys by an 
8-2 count for their fourth victory of 
the season on an unusually cold after- 
noon for late April. 

Tom Sawyer continued his devas- 
tation of enemy pitchers as he slam- 
med out three hits and drove in the 
same amount of runs while "Chuck" 
Zimmerman also fattened his already 
respectable batting average by teeing 
off on the opposition's hurling for 
three hits, batting in one run. Muraw- 
ski contributed to his own victory by 
collecting two singles for three times 
at bat thus keeping the unusually high 
slugging percentage of the Blue and 
-White twirling staff intact. Big Al, 
looked impressive on the mound and 
had the LaSalle batters doing every- 
thing but singing our Alma Mater as 
he sent fifteen of the Philadelphians 
down swinging and walked but two. 
Murawski had the game under con- 
trol at all times except in the sixth 
frame when the Explorers bunched a 
walk and thre'e singles for their only 
runs of the game. 

Freshman Merl Wise took over the 
catching chores for the day due to 
the fact that our usual back stop, 
"Hank" Dijohnson, was nursing an 
injured hand as a result of the Al- 
bright fray. Wise handled himself 
very well in his first college game 
and proved a reliable replacement to 
look forward to in the future. "Hank" 
showed his all around athletic versa- 
tility once again as he played second 
in place of Neal Woll, until Woll 
came on in the seventh. 

The Flying Dutchmen scored their 
first run in the third inning when 
Zimmerman nicked starting flipper 
Jim Covello for a single, stole second, 
went to third on catcher Zwann's 
erratic toss over the keystone sack, 
and crossed the plate when left fielder 
Hogan threw wild again in an attempt 
to cut Zimmerman down. Covello, 
the ace of the LaSalle mound staff 
who whipped Pennsylvania earlier in 
the month, went to the showers in 
the fifth frame after he opened the 
inning by hitting Richie Furda on 
the arm and walking "Shorty" Fields. 
Leon Stallings was injected to relieve 
Covello and this was just what the 
doctor ordered — that is, for Lebanon 
Valley. Sawyer greeted him with a 
bingle thus chasing Furda home and 
scooted to second while Fields was 
erased at third. Sawyer steamrolled 
home when thirdbaseman Curcio bob- 
bled Zimmerman's grounder and while 
an argument over Sawyer's recent 
run was going on Zimerman romped 
around to third since LaSalle failed 
to call time. Bill Schadler helped 
Zimmerman home when shortstop 
Neil Phillips mismanaged his drive. 

As if to say, "cheer up brother, the 
worst is yet to come," Wise started 
the sixth frame by lashing out a single 
but was called out at third when he 

attempted that bag after Murawski 
hit to right field. Al, meanwhile ran 
,to second, and scooted to third after 
Dale Shellenberggr grounded out. 
Fields was hit by Stallings and then 
the slamming Sawyer knocked home 
Murawski as he cut loose with a hit. 
Fields scored and Sawyer jotted to 
third on Zimmerman's scratch of the 
already highly abused offerings of 
Stallings. Here the homesters saw 
their third tosser take the hill as 
Harry McDermott mounted the 
mound to end the inning without an- 
other hit or run. 

McDermott got past the seventh 
inning in fine style, but apparently 
the Dutchmen batters didn't want to 
make Harry feel out of place in re- 
gards to the other two LSC mounds- 
men so they went to work on him. 
Murawski started things off with a 
single but was forced at second while 
"Shelly" was safe at first on a field- 
er's choice. Freddie Sample took a 
free pass and Sawyer added to Mc- 
Dermott's uneasiness by tagging a 
toss for a base hit that drove in 
Shellenberger and sent Sample to 
third. Sample then ended the scoring 
by touching home on Zimmerman's 
ground out.

St. Joseph, E-town 
Next for Measemen 

Coach Ralph Mease's charges in- 
vade Philadelphia for the second time 
in two weeks this afternoon as they 
go to the "City of Brotherly Love" 
to pitch battle against St. Joseph for 
their second game of three this week. 
On Tuesday the Flying Dutchmen 
were scheduled at Bethlehem to take 
on Moravian College's Bulldogs, 
while on May Day, Saturday, the 
Blue and White baseballers play their 
second home game of the season by 
meeting Elizabethtown on the new 
college field at 3 :3c 

St. Joe's should present the most 
formidable array of the three for 
the Dutchmen to handle. The Phila- 
delphians defeated always good Seton 
Hall last week and in a comparison 
with LaSalle, the Measers dunked 
the Explorers 8-2 while St. Joe split 
with them 3-2 and 4-20. Last year 

E.C.S.C. at Barnard; 
Miller and Snyder 
Present Papers 

On Friday, April 28th, twelve 
chemistry students accompanied by 
R. Arndt Weicksel traveled to New 
York City and Barnard College to 
attend the fourth annual Eastern Col- 
lege Science Conference. Barnard in 
a very efficient and characteristic fash- 
ion played host to 500 delegates from 
about one hundred colleges. 

After taking the wrong subway, 
the LVC delegation finally invaded 
Barnard Hall to take part in one of 
(the many field trips that were plan- 
'ned for the afternoon. Later Friday 
afternoon there was a reception and 
tea for the visiting faculty and that 
/night a telescope demonstration in 
Columbia Observatory in addition to 
two lectures. Professor Louis Fieser, 
Sheldon Emery, Professor of Chem- 
istry at Harvard and a consultant 
with the Merck and DuPont Comp- 
anies spoke on "Samuel C. Hooker : 
A Unique Career and an Unexpected 
Contribution to Therapy." Following 
Dr. Fieser, Professor Gochman, As- 
sistant Professor of Zoology at Bar- 
nard, at present engaged in research 
in the. comparative anatomy and phy- 
siology of the thyroid gland, spoke 
of the effects of high doses of radio- 
active iodine on the gland. 

On Saturday morning fifty student 
papers were presented and it is here 
that Bob Miller and Dale Snyder 
turned in a very creditable job with 
the moral support of ten fellow stu- 
dents. Although there was no com- 
petition and awarding of prizes, Leba- 
non Valley's Chemistry Department 
despite its size, ranked high among 
the colleges represented. 

That afternoon there were demon- 
strations and exhibits by Barnard and 
visiting colleges and Paul H. Smith 
and Norbert Wiener, both mathemat- 
ics professors, presented a contrast 
between pure and applied science. 
Professor Smith chairman of Colum- 
bia's Math Department spoke on 
"Fixed Points"— purely abstract math- 
ematics, and Professor Wiener of 
M.I.T. spoke on "Cybernetics"— a 
practical application of mathematics. 

The conference closed on Saturday 
night with a banquet in Barnard Hall 
and a speech by Dr. Edward Coudon, 
Director of the National Bureau of 
Standards, who spoke on "A Pyhsi- 
cist's Impressions of Science in India." 

E.C.S.C. is an organization of un- 
dergraduate science students whose 
purpose is to stimulate original re- 
search and the interchange of scien- 
tific ideas among students. Charlotte 
Grantz, Barnard '50, chairman of the 
conference, stated that, "The develop- 
ment of the conference as a perma- 
nent _ annual event in intercollegiate 
life is an expression of a trend on 
science education, a growing aware- 
ness that individual application of the 
scientific method to a specific problem 
is an invaluable experience for the 
student, an important supplement to 

prescribed courses and laboratory 

Ernst Nagel, Professor of Philos- 
ophy at Columbia University, in his 
article to the "Program Journal" on 
"The History of Philosophy as a 
Phase of the History of Science" 
stated that "a central problem of 
modern education is the invention oi 
suitable means for teaching science 
not simply as a collection of technical 
achievements and useful devices, but 
as a discipline employing a definite 
logic and possessing a crucial import 
for men's views of themselves in rela- 
tion to the rest of nature." 

LVC's delegation benefited greatly 
by participation in this conference and 
performed commendably for the de- 
partment and the school they repre- 
sented. The group attending the con- 
ference included : Dr. J. Arndt Weick- 
sel, Robert A. Uhrich Robert K. 
Miller, Victor L. Alsberge, Luke S. 
Albert George Bartels, Lewis W. 
Bowman, Robert D. Hoffsommer, 
Thomas F. Kirchoff, Alonzo L. Mantz, 
Dale R. Snyder, and Harry W. Wolfe. 


the Saints tripped the Valley nine by 
a 5-3 margin. Moravian and Eliza-

anced squads and cannot be taken 
lightly by the locals.

Chem Students Win 
Honors At Delaware 

While most of the college was en- 
joying the annual May Day festivities, 
some representatives of the Chemistry 
Department were winning laurels for 
the Valley on the University of Dela- 
ware campus. Last Saturday, May 6, 
four chemistry students accompanied 
by Drs. Weiksel and Neidig, traveled 
to the University to participate in the 
Intercollegiate Student Chemists Con- 
vention. The I.C.S. is similar in na- 
ture, but smaller in size, to the E.C.- 
S.C. in which the Valley was also 
represented last week. The active 
chapters of the I.S.C. are Bryn Mawr, 
Drexel, F. and M., Gettysburg, Haver- 
ford, Lafayette, Muhlenburg, Swarth- 
more, Temple, U. of Delaware, Ur- 
sinus, Villanova, and Wilson. 

The morning session of the confer- 
ence included the presentation of stu- 
dent papers on original research con- 
ducted during the past year. Bob Mil- 
ler, a junior in the college from Har- 
risburg, who had given his paper at 
Barnard where no competition was 
conducted, proved the value of his 
research by winning first prize, given 
on the merits of the quality of the 
research and the presentation of his 
paper. The title of his paper was 
"The Reduction of Lowe Aromatic 
Ketones." The project, under the 
direction of Dr. Neidig, was made 
possible by a Frederick G. Cottrell 
grant from the Research Corperation 
of New York given to the chemistry 
department at the end of last year. 

The chemistry department has an- 
other prize-winning student, Al Mantz, 
a senior from Lehighton. Al was re- 
cently awarded a graduate scholarship 
to the University of Delaware. Al's 
experiment on the subject "The Polo- 
graphic Studies of Lowe Aromatic 
Ketones" was started this year under 
the direction of Dr. Weiksel and is 
the first physical chemistry research 
to be conducted at the Valley. The 
second and third place prizes in the 
competition went to F. and M. and 
Swarthmore, with honorable mention 
for Delaware and Temple. 

Attending the conference were : Drs. 
Weiksel and Neidig, Bob Miller, Al 
Mantz, Louis Bowman and Elliott

Jazz Concert Rocks Engle 

Composer, arranger, and bandleader 
Don Trostle gave a full concert of 
good American jazz to a very recep- 
tive audience at Engle Hall last Fri- 
day night. The program included pro- 
gressive jazz, bop, original composi- 
tions by Don, and one of his special 
arrangements for band and mixed 
voices. The work done in preparation 
for the concert was apparent by the 
speed and smoothness with which it 

The first half of the program was 
instrumental, with the exception of a 
very fine rendition of "Sorry" by Ann 
Shroyer. Most of the arrangements 
centered around the woodwind sec- 
tion, with the brass blowing high and 
mighty in the back-ground. Mel Schiff 
gave an exceptionally good demon- 
stration of tone, control, technical 
ability, and wonderful imagination. 
The "Schiffless One" is a worthwhile 
addition to any jazz combo. _ 

Charlie Kreis blew a veritable 
storm in "Artistry in Boogie." "Car- 
los" plays what is known to jazz men 
as an impressionistic riff." Perhaps 
everyone didn't like it, but they sure- 
ly heard it. . • t» t 

They also heard Bob Rhein. Bob 
plays a style vaguely reminiscent of 
Chicago in 1935- His dark glasses 
and pugnacious pose completely round- 
ed off his satirical presentation of a 
form of jazz still admired in small 

musical circles. The audience im- 
mediately fell for him and had a good 
time clapping and whistling. By the 
way, Bob, were you using a stiff reed? 
A few of those notes were a few vib- 
rations off. 

Don was featured at piano in Theme 
to the West. Mr. Trostle's ability at 
the piano speaks for itself. Too bad 
a man with all that talent only has 
,ten fingers. 

Prof. E. P. Rutledge presented the 
Glee Club and changed the musical 
pace nicely. The Negro spirituals and 
American folk tunes are the basis of 
present-day jazz. Hearing them with 
the rest of the program was like see- 
ing a skeletal outline of all modern 
attempts at interpretation. 

Don's arrangement of "Tenderly," 
scored for band, voice, and strings, 
really brought down the house. Such 
a brilliant piece of work, arranged 
and presented in such a professional 
manne£, can not be praised too highly. 
The success or failure of the whole 
concert centered largely around this 
number. Needless to say, it was wor- 
thy of the attention it received. It 
couldn't miss, Don. 

It's all over, but it probably won't 
be forgotten for quite a while. All 
congratulations go to Don, the musi- 
cians, and the faculty V.I.P.'s who 
made the whole program possible. 
Will we have another next year?

St. Joe, E-town, and F & M Fall Before Dutchman Nine 

Valley Clubs St. loe 
Nine by 13-6 Score 

Apparently the Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege baseball squad holds some sort 
of supremacy over Philadelphia's col- 
legiate diamonders. This became evi- 
dent on Thursday afternoon when the 
Flying Dutchmen made their third 
bid for victory against a Quaker City 
team another success as they van- 
quished St. Joseph's College to the 
tune of 13-6 in a game that was mark- 
ed by free hittin, loose fielding, and 
erratic pitching. In their previous 
encounters with Philadelphia com- 
bines, Coach Ralph Mease's crew shut 
out Temple 6-0, and bombed La Salle 

A total of thirteen hits which in- 
cluded six doubles from the combined 
offerings of four St. Joe pitchers pac- 
ed the Blue and White to victory. 
Glenn Thomas won his first game of 
the season going seven and two-thirds 
innings before giving way to Neil 
Kraul. Thomas limited the Hawks 
to three hits and one run before he 
ran into trouble in the eighth. Kraul 
came on and walked a man but the 
inning was ended shortly as the next 
batter flied to left field. After the 
Valley ran wild for five runs in the 
top of the ninth to take a 13-3 lead, 
St. Joe added three more runs in 
the bottom of the same frame to end 
the dragged-out game. Kraul en- 
countered trouble in the ninth when 
he gave up two walks and two singles 
thus needing the assistance of Al 
Murawski to finish the contest. Mur- 
awski came on and pitched to four 
batters before the fray finally ended. 

Richie Furda scored the first LVC 
run after he had opened the game by 
grejeting starting twirler McNally 
with a single, racing home when the 
Saint's shortstop, Young, erred on 
"Chuck" Zimmerman's smash. The 
Valley notched two more markers in 
the fifth. Floyd Becker was safe on 
a fielder's choice and scored on 
Young's second error while Thomas, 
who made first on the same error, 
tagged home plate as "Shorty" Fields 
clouted a double. The Valleymen ran 
up another score in the sixth _ when 
Zimmerman singled, went to third on 
Schadler's double and registered as 
■"Hank" Dijohnson flied to center. 
Schadler batted in two more runs in 
the seventh frame when he doubled 
in Tom Sawyer and Zimmerman who 
had made first safely on another 
Young error and a fielder's choice re- 
spectively. Still another pair of # plate- 
crossings were accomplished in the 
eighth when Thomas began the inning 
with a single and romped home on 
Fields' second two-bagger. Fields in 
turn scored when Sawyer helped ruin 
the Hawks' hurler, Homyak, who 
came in to relieve starter McNally, 
by bashing the ball for another Leb- 
anon Valley double. 

Then came the ninth and if St. Joe's 
thought that the hitting, running, and 
scoring was over, they had another 
guess coming for the Blue and White 
chased home five runs on one hit, 
six free passes, a balk and an error. 
Homyak walked Schadler who went 
to second when Dijohnson hit safely. 
Becker drew a base on balls to load 
the bags. John Stamato walked for 
catcher Merl Wise forcing Schadler 

Measemen Slaughter 
Elizabethtown 15-2 

Keeping in line with the joyous cel- 
ebration of May Day, the Lebanon 
Valley College nine came up with a 
bizarre third inning and trampled 
Elizabethtown College's horsehkiers 
by an overwhelming 15-2 count on 
Saturday afternoon. The baseball 
game was the first inter-collegiate 
contest of any sort to be played on the 
new athletic field and was a fine chris- 
tening the new diamond. Al Muri 
awski recorded his third win of the 
season as he went the distance in 
downing the visitors. 

Once again "Chuck" Zimmerman 
and Tom Sawyer were the leading 
hitters for the Flying Dutchmen. Zim- 
merman had a perfect day at the plate 
collecting three hits for three times 
at bat, while Sawyer hit two for four. 
After E-town marked up one run in 
the top of the first, the Blue and 
White came back with five walks, 
four of which were consecutive, plus 
two flies to the outfield to let in three 
Dutchmen runs. Each team went 
without a run during the second in- 
ning and then came Elizabethtown' s 
fatal third, which had the makings of 
a track meet. A total of seventeen 
men came to bat in this frame as the 
Valleyites created a scorekeeper's 
nightmare by scoring twelve runs on 
seven hits, six free passes, a hit bat- 
ter, and a wild pitch. Upon comple- 
tion of this miniature marathon Coach 
Ralph Mease began inserting replace- 
ments and there was no more scoring 
for the afternoon. E-town managed 
its other run in the top of the third 
before the Dutchman deluge. 

The visiting pitchers, Kopenhauer 
and Walters, allowed a total of ten 
hits and fourteen walks. Who said 
the LV players missed the May Day 
events ?

Dutch Diamonders 
Down Diplomats 8-5 

Lebanon Valley played host to 
Franklin & Marshall College for its 
tenth game of the current campaign 
on Monday afternoon and after the 
ball game was over the Flying Dutch- 
men recorded their seventh victory of 
the season by blackjacking the Diplo- 
mats 8-5 . Fred Fore marked up His 
third triumph as he handled the hurl- 
ing duties for Coach Ralph Mease. 
Fore allowed six hits, struck out nine, 
and walked four as he performed the 
full nine innings against F & M's 
ace. Bob Forstburg. 

The Measemen took a 2-0 first in- 
ning edge and were never headed as 
they coasted to their third consecu- 
tive win at home against no defeats. 
Lebanon Valley scored twice in the 
third, once in the fifth and three 
times in the seventh to round out the 
scoring for the day. The visitors from 
Lancaster came within one run in 
the seventh but the three Valley regis- 
trations in that period erased their 
deuce and left the win intact. F. &M. 
threatened in the ninth as Forstburg 
took a base on balls and touched home 
on Longenecker's triple. The next 
batter, however, ended the rally and 
the other two went down in the same 
order. "Chuck" Zimmerman contin- 
ued his good hitting by setting the 
pace for the Blue and White with 
two for four.

Field Trips Held By 
Sociology Department j 

On Wednesday and Friday of last j 
week, May 10 and 12, members of the 
Criminology class participated in a 
field trip to various penal institutions 
in the State. On Wednesday the class 
visited Eastern State Penitentiary in 
Philadelphia and Graterford Prison 
at Collegeville. Eastern State is one 
jbf the oldest prisons in the State, and 
the class was interested in the setup 
of its facilities. 

Dr. Shearer, prison psychologist, 
conducted the group on a tour of the 
prison, showing the students the cell 
arrangement, the printing shops, kitch- 
ens, the craft shops, and library. He 
also distributed typical prison rec- 
ords of prisoners in order that the 
students could acquaint themselves 
with the official entrance procedure 
maintained by the prison. Many of the 
modern trends in the handling of 
prisoners were explained to the stu- 

in the afternoon, the class went to 
Graterford Prison in Collegeville. 
This is one of the most modern pris- 
ons in the country. Within its sixty- 
two acres of walled grounds are large 
recreation areas, a modern auditorium 
with facilities for plays and motion 
pictures, weaving shops, tailor and 
shoe shops, a laundry, refrigerator 
plant, hothouse, and bakery. Because 
very few prisoners at Graterford re- 
main there longer than five years, 
morale seemed to be higher. Many 
students expressed wonder at the 
extremely modern facilities. 

Friday the group began its tour 
with a visit to the State Police Train- 
ing School at Hershey. There they 
were guided by Sgt. Grossnich, a part 
time student at LVC. He showed 
them the facilities at the school and 
explained the training program at the 
school. From Hershey, the group 
went to Harrisburg, wehre they were 
introduced to Judge Rupp in his 
chambers at the Dauphin County 
Courthouse. Judge Rupp explained 
his duties as County Judge and ans- 
wered many questions put to him by 
members of the group. After visiting 
the Law Library and various court- 
rooms in the ultra modern courthouse, 
the group proceeded to Whitehill In- 
dustrial School for Boys at Lemoyne. 

During their visit to this ten-year- 
old institution, the students witnessed 
the many activities of the boys. Since 
the ages of boys are between fifteen 
and twenty-five years, the group was 
anxious to see what the officials of 
the school have provided for their 
rehabilitation. Under the guidance of 
Dr. Philips, chief psychologist at 
Whitehill, the class was able to roam 
rather freely through the many build- 
ings. They saw the boys who attend 
the many classes of high school level,

Campus Chatter . . . 

Never thought the time would arrive, but it's here and gone. The last 
big dance of the year — the Senior Ball — has had its fling and is now past 
history. Hotel Brunswick again the center of the festivities. Andy Kerner 
and his orchestra out of this world as usual. President Bob Uhrich doing the 
honors for the class. 

All the old faithfuls there — never did see so many engaged girls in 
one class — loads of best wishes and congrats to Jan Eppley and Norm Bucher 
and to Toni Reed and Lee Spangler on the engagements. Those diamonds 
were outshone only by the gleams in their eyes. 

Good to see the many nonsocialite men day students treating their wives 
to a good time — Mr. and Mrs. Jim Parsons, Mr. and Mrs. Goerge Mayhoffer, 
Mr. and Mrs. Wally Womer, Mr. and Mrs. Jim Davis to mention a few. 
Don Potter, Ralph Roberts, and crowd with girls from their local stamping 
grounds. Bob Kline and Mickey Baker escorting local lovelies — Marion 
Millard and Jean McClure respectively. 

Elliot Nagle (escorting Polly Stoner) given the raspberries by the chem 
department. Seems like old times to see Ruthie Kramer and Bill Miller. 
Lefty Euston and Beatie Meiser having fun together. Bob Moller and Phyl 
Dale a new couple. Bob Eigenbrode and Eppie Gehman with John Beddall 
and Dotty Kline. Ray "Hiram" Kline coming stag and rushing all the faculty 
wives. Good to see John McClure with Nancy Moyer and Dan Fraunfelter 
with Mary Daugherty back after a semester in the cold cruel world. Al 
Zangrilli with a cute little trick from home. 

Ephrata Legion looking like second Hotel Brunswick later in the evening. 
Have you heard about George Roman and Hank Dijohnson exchanging 
shoes? And so a gay time was had by all. 

The Flying Saucer Story 

By Jay Flocken 

I have kept the story which Orm told to me secret for several months 
Why? Who would believe that not only had I seen a "flying saucer," but 
that I had spoken to a man in one of them? Who would believe me if I 
said that he spoke a language which I could understand — because it was 
my own — ? Who would believe a college student if he said that he knew 
the reason people saw "flying saucers," when scientific, military, and other 
expert testimony had been published that nothing anything near descriptions 
of the saucers existed? 

Why do I now release the story? I will answer that when I have set 
down Orm's story ... 

I was standing in the corner of the stack room in the library. It must 
have been 8 o'clock, because I saw through the window other students hud- 
dled about the television set in Washington Hall, watching the strip of 
newspaper pass before their eyes telling, I suppose, the lurid details of the 
recent murder. 

Then I saw it. Over the top of North Hall appeared a circular object, 
shimmering a dull white glow. It hovered above the dorm for a moment 
and then floated noiselessly down into th,e excavation that will be the new 
gym. I rubbed my eyes and pinched myself . . . but no, a soft radianqe 
now shone from the pile of earth beside the construction. I left the library 
and walked over to the spot on the campus where I had seen the thing 
disappear. It sounds corny, but I whistled "Onward Christian Soldiers," the 
wind whipped the tune back over my head and I couldn't hear if I was making 
noise or not, so I beat out the notes with my hand. As I approached 
the light I heard a queer humming sound, like that of a powerful radio tuned 
to a station that isn't on the air. 

Losing interest quickly, I turned to run into the White House, when a 
hand caught my shoulder and a voice said, 

"Lookin' for somethin' buddy?" 

"Who the devil are you?" I asked, thinking some gink from the Men's 
Dorm had spotted my rather peculiar meanderings. 

"My name's Orm. Whatcha lookin' fer?" 

Orm? I knew there wasn't a name like that on campus. 

"Orm? Where do you live . . . er, I mean, do you go here?" 

"Well not .exactly, I guess. But I do spend a lot of time around the 
place . Just at night, though, so I guess no one sees us." 

"Us? Are there more?" 

"Why sure thing, buddy . But say, let me introduce ya to 'em. C'mon 

I bit through my pipe stem and was led over the pile of earth, down 
into the excavation. 

"Yep," Orm was continuing, "we spend a lot of time over here on your 
campus. Right good deposit you have, too. Guess we'll soon finish up though 
and move on to the next job." 

The men I saw were moving silently about the hole, filling huge bottles 
(I guess they were bottles) with the earth that had been piled up beside 
the excavation by the bull-dozers. 

"What in the world are you doing? What are you putting in thojse 
bottles that seems so important?" 

"That? Why sonny, where I come from that stuff is priceless arid if it 
weren't for holes like this we'd be in a pretty mess of cheese." 

"Just where are you from, Mr. Orm?" 
"Oh, I thought you knew. In that case I'll let you have fun guessing. I'll 
give you a hint, thoulgh . . . you see it right now up above you." 

I looked up into the sky. He couldn't mean there. 

"I'm afraid I don't get it, Mr. Orm." 

"Well the F.O.E. boys was right all right . You folks don't know 
nothin', do you?" 


By Betty Bakley 

Last but by no means least (in the words of that good old cliche) is that 
suave and sophisticated man about campus John Smith better known as J. C 
or just plain Smitty, who is the senior personality of the week. And speaking 
of personality, Smitty has just that. A debonair guy with friendly blue eyes 
(behind those distinguished-looking horn rims), Smitty is a well-known 
figure on campus. His title in the '49 Quittie of the Best Dressed Man was 
a well deserved one, for his excellent taste in clothes is a trade mark. 

Smitty who hails from Berwyn, Pennsylvania, is a business administra- 
tion major. Among the offices which he has held, with president of the Men's 
Senate heading the list, are : president of freshman class, vice president of the 
sophomore class, and treasurer of Kalo for two years. A member of the Pol. 
Sci. Club, he went with the group sent to ICG in 1950. A fitting climax to 
this string of honors was his election to Who's Who of 1950. 

Something in the field of business or perhaps politics, in which he is 
interested, seems to be in the future for Smitty. It wouldn't be hard to 
picture him in either role. 

An active guy who did a great deal for his college Sjmitty will be 
missed by all. Its the same old line — but sincere — "good luck, Smitty." 

"I admit I'm stupified. But what is all this and who are the F.O.B. 


"Not F.O.B. It's F.O.E. . . . Files on Earth. You see where I live, 
it's mighty important to know all about everybody in the whole world. Just 
like all the other planets and moons, you know, to sort of see that things is 
spread out a bit more equal." 

"You mean you're from another planet?" 

"Now you're getting' warm. Well, I'll tell you so's you don't think 
I'm stringin' you along. I'm from Moon. I said you could see where I was 
from just by lookin up into the sky. That Moon is my home . . • t hese 
boys live there, too." 

"But . . . there's no life, no air . . . er, no water, no ground • • • 

"Now look here, young man, we don't go truckin' around the universe 
to talk nonsense with dumb kids. I don't want to seem impolite, but please 
don't tell me nothiri .'bout no air, or life, or nothiri like that. I'm li[ e ' 
that's why we're her,e. Our head Mooner is a consermoonist, ' and we're 
following out his new land policy. We are kinda short of ground on Moo", 
and since the Bright Brothers invented this new Moonmobile parked over 
there, we can go anywheres we please, and gather up ground. We don 1 
need much. See, you're ground weighs more on Moon than it does here. and 
we treat it with some kinda stuff the LuBont people developed that make> 
it go further." 

"This is fantastic. I don't believe it, not a bit of it!" 

"Would you like a ride in the Moonmobile to convince you? I £ u f* 
we still have enough spare beams to get us back to Moon if I took you W r 
a spin. ' 

"No, its a trick of some kind : You think a freshman would fall for *J 
stuff like a mock murder or somethin'. I'll bet you're from Albright. r> lU 
I m "A't* ^eshman, and I don't go for this moony stuff, anyway." 

O.K., buddy, I just wanted to let you in on the «=ecret. You know W" 
many people have seen these Moonmobiles and mistook 'em for somethin' else ' 
1 thought we could explain it decent like and stop all this foolishness. G* jes 
the F.O.E. boys was righter than right." 

So saying, Orm turned on his heel and addressed the working ^ 
* r fellows, that'll be enough for this trip. Load the bottles m l " 

Moonmobile and let's take off." 

I wasn't noticed by any of them after that. They carried all the bot£» 
to the far side of the excavation aqfld disappeared with them behind an*" 
pile of ground. Orm did stop to wave at me, and then he disappeared ^ 

1 waited for something to happen. Nothing did. I convinced myse" l " 
1 was having hallucinations and walked back to the library to sober up 
the Congressional Record. But as I entered the stack room again, a u»Vj 
circular glow rose up from the site of the new gym and after what see* Jj 
like a second, softly lifted into the sky until I saw it disappear in the c0 
reflection from the moon 

That s the story . . . that's what I've been harboring -within mys elf fhe 
almost two months. I can't believe it myself, but it must have happened. 1 
pile of ground is going down somewhat, and the other day a construe* 
worker found a large glass bottle, stamped with the words "Moons" 
Excavators. I m not ready to say it is so, but Lebanon Valley College < 
already been visited by what a man from Moon described to me as N£ te 
mobiles I release this story so that proper action can be made to invest 
the condition.

Who's Who in the Conserv 

This week's candidate for Who's Who in the Conserv is senior William 
Lemon HI, representative of Middletown, Pa. Bill has quite an impressive 
record piled up behind him. His school record alone is well worth mentioning. 
Before his graduation from Middletown High in 1943, he was student con- 
ductor of the school band, and directed a band for Dr. Frank Simon and 
Albertus Myers. He served as the president of the Safety Council and was 
a member of the National Honor Society. As proof of his early vocal 
accomplishments he sang in the School Glee Club and the Boys' Octette. 
Somehow Bill found time to play in the School Symphony Orchestra and 
Jead the School Dance Band. He also directed the Junior High School 

After his graduation from high school, Bill served 32 months in the 
Army, with 17 months overseas. Continuing his career in music, he held the 
rank of T/4 as a member of the 243rd Army Ground Force Band, and was 
assistant in charge of the radio program in Baltimore. 

In his hometown Bill is a member of the Official Board of the Middle- 
town Methodist Church where he also serves as the assistant choir director. 
An added feather in Bill's hat is one season with the Harrisburg Symphony 
fenestra, and he has directed his own 30-piece concert band and the 
Uizabethtown Municipal Band. 

At Lebanon Valley Bill has been a member of the Concert Band, the 
Symphony Orchestra, and the Glee Club Accompaniment Orchestra, and he 
sang in the College Chorus. He has also played in the band for intercollegiate 
ynorus under the direction of Dr. Lara Hoggard and assisted Prof. Rutledge 
m the direction of the band for the May Day program, and he pfayed in the 
J 32 * Concert in Engle Hall.

Another Valley View 

By Bill Fisher 

Concerning our views of Valley 
sports some of the following com- 
ments were gathered after a short 
session with Athletic Director Ralph 

Coach Mease also felt that a local 
league would help to create more fan 
.interest for all colleges concerned. But 
he was quick to point out that efforts 
have been made in the past to formu- 
late a league but met with little suc- 

It seems that the biggest obstacle 
to overcome is deciding who's in 
whose class. Some of the teams feel 
that the others are too big for them 
and vice versa. 

Much of the impetus for establish- 
ing such a league should and probably 
would have to come from the Middle 
Atlantic Conference ; but as an exam- 
ple of what success the MAC has had 
at forming a league, take basketball. 

It used to be that MAC was com- 
posed of three divisions — the North- 
ern, Southern, and Western — of about 
4 teams each. But in a short time 
even a part of this system broke up 
because some of the colleges didn't 
like the competition in their division. 

The whole thing seems to come 
down to the fact that each college 
wants to have their own way and say, 
»which in the long run won't prove a 

, No league can be perfect. Someday 
maybe these small colleges will learn 
that. One thing they must realize is 
(that never failing axiom that, "When 
somebody wins — somebody else has to 
lose." Naturally some of the teams 
jare going to constantly run up against 
■istiffer competition; that's how a lea- 
gue operates. 

, As for having Albright as our last 
game, Mease replied that "It's being 
worked on, but contract commitments 
will probably make it 2 or 3 years 
before it can be arranged."

Moravian Trims 
Valley Sluggers 

An eight run seventh inning by 
Moravian on Saturday afternoon re- 
sulted in a 15-8 triumph for the visit- 
ing Greyhounds and dampened any 
hopes Lebanon Valley might have had 
for being invited to the Middle Atlan- 
tic Conference baseball payoffs. The 
\loss was the first inflicted on the Fly- 
ling Dutchmen at home this year. Fred 
iFore received the beginning chucking 
assignment and was charged with the 
defeat. However, Fred cannot be total- 
ly blamed for the loss since Valley er- 
rors and a lackadaisical attitude ac- 
counted largely in the Measers' fourth 
loss in an even dozen starts. 

Lebanon Valley led 3-1 until Mor- 
avian took over at 5-3 in the top of 
the fifth and then the Valley came 
back in the bottom making it 5-all. 
After a scoreless sixth came the 
fiasco as Moravian connected for 
six hits, three walks, two errors, and 
a stolen base to chase home eight runs 
and sew up the victory. Al Murawski 
relieved the let-down and disappointed 
Fore and he had no trouble until the 
final inning when Gerenscer led off 
with a double and Seifert did even 
better by plastering a triple thus chas- 
ing in the last two of the Bethlehem- 
4ers' runs with the help of another 

The Dutchmen scored their other 
two runs when Mark Heberling tag- 
ged one of tosser Seifert's pitches for 
a homerun in the seventh and Floyd 
Becker fascinated the crowd by also 
homering in the ninth with Hank Di- 
Johnson aboard. "Chuck" Zimmer- 
man once again was leading hitter by 
gaining two nicks in four attempts 
with Dijohnson and Becker duplicat- 
ing exactly. Heberling had two for

so far. We like it because a kettle is closely related to Pa. Dutch folklore 
and is a good size for a trophy case and scores. 

So when Albright is finally secured as the final game on our schedule, 
let's start awarding the trophy. What a natural ! 

And I can see the headlines now — 

Well, I can dream, can't I? 

But I've been dreaming 4 years. Please, for Lebanon Valley s sake, let s 
make this dream come true. 



La Vie Collegienne. Thursday, May 18, 1950

As Good as Dead? 

Someone once said, "Life consists of wanting. When a man is satisfied, 
he's as good as dead." Assuming that also applies to us, we shall direct 
this week's buoyant essay of hope to whom it concerns — Lebanon Valley 
students and administration. 

We'd like to say a little about a little something that LV seems to have 
little of, athletically anyway. Tradition is the word. 

What is to follow is simly one small voice put forth with full faith 
and hope that something will be done. It is, we believe, a fair representation 
of opinions, ideas and wishes we have- hear verbalized in 4 years at the 
Valley. As we see it many of the opinions are connected in one way or 
another with what we've chosen to call tradition — or lack of it. 

Webster Says . . . 

\\ hat is tradition anyway ? That old dependable Webster says, "Some- 
thing handed down from the past; an inherited culture, attitude, etc." 

In the realm of sports what "inherited culture" or "attitude" do we here 
at LV have handed down from the past? Don't snicker please, there is 
more involved here than you think. 

The feeling persists that LV has no tradition; and we can't think of 
a more opportune time to start establishing tradition, if such a thing is 
possible, than right now. What with a new gym, new stadium and new 
coaches all set to put an about face on Valley sports, the time for action 
is today. 

As a Starter 

Let's have some schedule changes ; and we're speaking now of football 
and basketball. As of next fall when the new gym is completed the Valley 
will have to face a crowd problem — how to draw a crowd, that is. 

The popular consensus seems to be that LV won't be able to draw fans 
to athletic events in Annville, and the basis for this belief seems well-founded. 
Sports fans, being the fickle folk they are, sometimes get pretty choosey 
about their ball teams. 

Therefore something must be done to make our games a bit more attrac- 
tive than in the past, because if not, the 4 miles between Lebanon and Annville 
may just as well be 40 as far as some Lebanon customers are concerned. 

The notion here has been, and still is, that we can draw in Annville — 
if we get some schedule changes and try to form a league of some sort. 

LV does not really have a set schedule in football or basketball, neither 
is there a good league tie-up. True, in basketball we are included in the 
Middle Atlantic_ Conference; but if that outfit has functioned in good 
competitive fashion over the past few years it has net been visible to the 
naked eye. 

In football there is no league. As a consequence we have no really big 
traditional game, possibly with the exception of Albright — but more about 
that later. 

Over the past 4 years we have played no less than 15 different football 
teams, an inevitable result being a loss of fan interest. A prescription to 
possible prosperity would seem to be the formation of a "local" league of, 
say 6 to 8 teams, who would play each other through the season. 

In addition to increasing spectator appeal, a local league would stir 
up keen rivalry at each game and make for better ball games as a win would 
naturally boost a team in the league standings. 

Middle-of-the Road 

Granted, problems are bound to arise when a league is proposed. One 
thing sure is that any league should include teams which are on a par 
athletically; all of which brings up the question as to what local colleges 
are in our class. 

The impression in this corner is that LV football is in a precarious 
middle-of-the-road position. Seems we are a little too good for our own 
class and maybe not quite strong enough for the next class. 

Perhaps an explanation is due. Our class, we've been informed, is those 
teams who do not have spring training and who play freshmen — teams like 
Juniata, Susquehanna, Moravian, Albright, and Mt. St. Mary's. The group 
above us, the one we like to believe is our class, is F & M, Gettysburg, 
Dickinson, Western Maryland and Muhlenberg. 

So, if a league is to be formed, the question will have to be answered, 
and soon, which road LV shall take — the high or low. Here's one firm vote 
in favor of the high road. 

Salvaged Glory or Icing on the Cake? 

Another improvement, a definite must, is to get Albright as our last 
game of the season. If we have anything near a traditional game now, it's 
Albright; but it is a game that has tremendous possibilities in the future. 

For instance, with Albright last, no matter what happens during the 
season there's always the BIG GAME coming up. If we have a bad season 
then there is the traditional game left to salvage some glory from. And if 
we have a good season, then an Albright win would simply be icing on 
the cake. 

LV vs. Albright as the season's finale is a natural — if only we can 
soon get together and take advantage of it. 

If we may be allowed, we'd offer one more suggestion. 

An Old Iron Kettle 

Let's add a little trimming to the Albright game by offering an Old 
Oaken Bucket or Little Brown Jug type of trophy to the winning team. 

As a suggestion, why not award an Old Iron Kettle to the winner. Each 
year the kettle would be placed in the trophy case of the winning college with 
the score of the game painted on the side. 

The trophy need not be a kettle, that's simply the best idea we've had

West. Maryland Succumbs 
To LV Onslaught 19-10 

Western Maryland may have beaten Lebanon Valley in football ; given us a 
rough time before bowing in basketball ; but when it comes to baseball, we 
let's face it, Western Maryland is "nowhere." The Green Terrors rolled 
into Annville on last Wednesday afternoon and then proceeded to engage 
the Flying Dutchmen in a game of baseball, if that's what you care to call 
that athletic endeavor which was demonstrated. Anyway, the ensuing slaugh- 
ter was decided to be called at the end of six-and-one-half innings by mutua 
consent of the respective schools' coaching staffs. At the end of the thin 
frame the Flying Dutchmen were coasting a 13-2 bulge and moved this 
to 19-4 before the Marylanders six run surge in top of the seventh which 
finally ended the fray at 19-10, Lebanon Valley. 

Oddly enough, the Mason-Dixonites scored first when they registered 
two unearned runs in the initial inning. However, the Dutchmen came back 
and pushed six markers across in the bottom of the first and second stanzas 
and that decided the ball game right there. Thereafter, the Measemen 
managed to tally in every frame until the game was finished. Henry Dijohn- 
son joined "Chuck" Zimmerman and Tom Sawyer in their usual pulverizing 
of the pellet by having a perfect day at the plate, hitting three for three. 
Zimmerman collected two hits for three times at bat while Sawyer slashed 
out a double and a triple in four trips up. Frosh catcher Merl Wise also came 
in for his share of pitcher-belting plaudit.* as he connected two out of three 
times. While nearly everyone was having an enjoyable time fattening their 
batting averages, Neal Woll, or as he is better known, "the people's choice," 
became the outstanding hero on the field as he stunningly surprised his 
razzers and turned their jeers to cheers by picking up the maple, taking aim, 
and batting the ball into deep, left center for Lebanon Valley's first home 
run at home this season. 

Glenn Thomas was the winning twirler and was one of four pitchers 
used by Coach Ralph Mease. Bill Frazier was injected in the fourth and 
did very well. Mease then sent Neil Krall in in the last frame, the seventh, 
and the freshman right-hander ran into quite a bit of trouble as the rejuven- 
ated Marylanders jumped on him for five hits and six runs. With one out, 
Al Murawski was called on to act as fireman. Big Al struck out two of 
the three batters facing him, one managing to reach first on an error; and 
thus the high scoring affair was ended.
